Last Saturday (7th October 17) we welcomed Larne Swimming Club to Coleraine to swim in the 2nd PTL Gala of the season.
With a few of our key swimmers unavailable due to other commitments and illness we knew this was going to be a very tough ask to beat Larne. We started the gala off well with 2 wins in the first 2 events with the Group A girls and boys medley relays. However Larne proved too strong for our young PTL team and won the gala by a convincing number of points. Our swimmers performed well however and managed 64PBs between them all.
Eighteen swimmers had 2 or more PBs each – they were – Yna C, Molly C, Daniel E, Flynn G, Joshua H, Finn I, Jake I, Eva J, Emma K, Mark K, Aleksandra K, Max McC, Isla McC, Lauren M, Paul R, Rebecca R, Ben S and Oran W. Well done to everyone.
All swim times are up in our Results portal – log in to see your child’s times at this gala.
Molly also broke a long standing Club 50m breaststroke record previously held by Olympian Emma Robinson. Molly took 1.03secs off the record to set a new time of 32.92sec.
If you think your child may have broken a club record please email firstname.lastname@example.org and this will be verified and confirmed by club officials – see our Records page for currrent records.
