Due to the change in the synchro year the club has held its second Club Figure Competition of 2019 but the first of the 2019/20 synchro year.
Again, almost all members of the club competed. And again, we are grateful to our volunteers for being clerks, scorers, judges and team managers, to Linda for again being an amazing guest judge, and to Ilona, one of our older swimmers who was unable to swim so stepped into a judge role.
Swimmers competed in either their Age Group figures / element or figures from the grade they are due to take next. For some swimmers who only passed their latest grade on 6 October that was a big step up, but they impressed the judges and coaches immensly.
The medals handed out by our President, Claire, feature the club’s original logo.
There was tight competition for the top spots but the results were:
Grade One –
Grade Two –
12&under / Grade Three –
1. Rose M
13-15 / Grade Four –
Junior / Grade Five –
1. Niamh P
The full results are below.
