We attended the Guildford Gala on the 20th of November 2016.
This was a great success, we had 10 swimmers attend with 38 swims, a huge amount of swimming for such a young team. We had new gala swimmers for the first time, well done to you, great swims with some lovely medals
A lot of the faster swimmers had a difficult time, swimming against really large men, unfortunately this gala is always mixed events, and although it is all swam on times, it is off putting to see a tiny Eels swimmer against a huge man. This can mess with the head.
We had personal best times and lots of medals, and amazing swimming strokes, and this is thanks to our amazing teachers who work so hard with our swimmers, thank you all
Thanks also to Max Greasily and Nayab for assisting me on poolside.
I was so proud of you all. Well done.
