In the second relay the 4 x 100m FC , Kirsha,  Holly, Liv and Gracie all Pbd their 100m times totaling 4.56.06  with the team  placing 9th

 

 

 

We were looking forward to the final two days,

Liv and Gracie going into the 100m and 200m breastroke seeded 1st and 2nd in the 100m and 1st and 3rd in the 200m, with a great chance of winning gold and silver in both events.

Liv is also seeded 2nd in the 200m back,

Holly is seeded  5th in 50m fly,  6th 100m fly, with 400im as her final race , Cary Watchorn is seeded 5th in the 100m fly,  Ethan Williams has 4 races left having a good chance of making 3 finals in the 50m fly, 100m Breast and 200m Breast seeded. Jamie Waite swimming in the 50m Brs, and Andy Boardman 4 races still to swim.

I proved to be very dissapointing for Jamie Waite who traveled down in the early hrs of Sunday morning in preperation for his swim, only to find out as he reached the pool that a light bulb had burst over the pool and the last 2 days have had to be re-scheduled for the 18th and 19th of April.

Could the swimmers who were due to compete on the final two days, please let me know if you intent to travel back to Swansea on the 18th and 19th, room bookings need to be done quickly to get a good deal.

i believe for those who are not traveling back down Swim Wales are offering a refund see message from swim wales below.

ps there is a withdrawl form on the swim wales website to claim money back for swimming events (see below).
