We had 5 dedicated swimmers attend the Allsop Antrim Open gala in Larne on 4th/5th May. It was a superb, fast moving event with a chance to compete in a full range of events not available at most galas and learn from the very best local swimmers.
All our swimmers produced significant achievements:
Andrew Lipscomb got his first qualifying time, in the 100 BC.
Hannah got another div 2 time – this time in 100m BC.
Orlaith shook off the rust from recent gaps In training and swam PBs in 100m BF and 200m BS.
Annie took on the big guns in the 50m heats finishing one second outside a place in the 50 free skins final.
Highlight of the weekend was Jack Finn’s superb 200m BC time to give him a second qualifying time, well on the way to his next level.
We look forward to the next development gala and the Mary Peters Open at the start of June to push for more qualifying, Div 1 and Div 2 times.
