Congratulations to all swimmers competing in last week’s Scottish Nationals in Edinburgh.
There were fantastic results from the Glasgow swimmers with a final team placing of 8th overall team in the competition. Last year in Sunderland the team came 16th so this was a massive improvement from all swimmers and our best team result for several years.

Well done to all swimmers, parents, officials, team managers and coaches for their support to achieve this result.

There were a huge number of personal best times achieved and in total the team achieved fifteen medals: four gold, three silver and eight bronze.
It was really pleasing to see so many swimmers from across the four performance squads making it through to the finals. This shows a massive development of the performance level of our top squads competing against Scotlands best with more swimmers qualifying for British National in the summer than ever before.

British Times Achieved

Congratulations to the following swimmers on achieving qualification times for British Nationals in July:

Camilla Hattersley, Mark Deans, Ross McCafferty, Kirstin McKInley
Anna Fleming, Lauren Gilkes, Rhiannon Gilkes and Ruairi Kirkwood

Following the meet the senior coaching staff commented that this was a fantastic week for Glasgow swimmers. This result was a credit to the swimmers who delivered personal best times at this targeted meet. It just shows when the swimmers commit to the annual training programme (especially during the dark cold winter mornings) they will peak at the right time.

The challenge for our team is now to expand the number of swimmers competing at this level particularly at the Junior Level.

Now the focus moves to the next national event at Tollcross in June where we hope to continue this run of outstanding success!!!

Andrena Hammond

The coaches and the swimmers would also like to thank Maureen Hughes and Wilma Ross, our Team Managers for the week. They did an excellent job looking after everybody who was staying in Edinburgh for the full week and also those who just came thru for their swims. They also did a great job of encouraging team spirit and getting everybody up to cheer when a Glasgow swimmer was in the water.

to quote Dave Hill:

"Can you pass on my thanks to both the brilliiant team chaperones at Edinburgh. The team swam brilliantly well and I think that was a major contibutary factor everybody being well looked after by these two very obliging ladies. Nothing was too much trouble a big thank you from all the coaching team staff and all the swimmers who stayed through in Edinburgh."
