ASA Nationals qualifying times for this October’s event in Sheffield.
A Great morning at the Dorking Swimarathon
Our 3 teams had a successful swim at Dorking on Saturday 11th March. In the process we raised £415 for Dorking Friends of Cancer Research.
The Speedy 12 O'clock Team managed once again to get over the 100 laps barrier with a total of 102. Many thanks to Debbie and Miguel's friend Steve who came all the way from Worthing to bring the team up to the full complement of 6 swimmers. Also a special mention to Tom Baxter who was awesome!
The 11am Teams also put in a great effort and were pretty close with 77 laps from the A team, and 72 from the B team despite some underhand tactics from the B Team!
Good luck to Jane who is competing in the South African Masters LC Nationals in East London. Her events are
800m, 400m & 100m freestyle and the 50m butterfly.
Good news - Tom our assistant coach has just heard that he has been selected for the 23rd Summer Deaflympics Games, which will take place in Samsun, Turkey in July 2017. This is his 3rd time at the Deaflympics and his 7th international meet in his swimming career representing Great Britain.
Sadly, Deaf Athletes do not receive any funding from the Government or sports organisations so each athlete has to raise their own funds to be able to take part so I have included the link to Tom's Just giving page should you wish to make a donation
