Well done to our magnificent nine – Emma Barrett, Killian Burke, Triona Curley, Ellie Flanagan, Leah Furey, Siofra Hannon, Grace McInerney, Ruairi Owens and Aisling Walsh – who all took part in the first Future Challenger of the season, which was hosted by Shark SC in Leisureland, Galway.
As the new band award system was introduced, we were delighted to see Ruairi collect a B-Band for freestyle, and Siofra picked up a B-Band for freestyle and an A-Band for breaststroke! Well done athletes!
Special thanks to coach Karen, team manager Tommy and our volunteer timekeepers, Ger and Vera.
Congratulations to the athletes who competed at the Club Time Trials before the untimely lockdown, which resulted in our pool closing. Despite the challenges facing competitions this season, the team reset their goals and have proved that with a positive attitude, we can overcome obstacles that come our way!
Thank you to everyone who participated and to the parents who volunteered to help. The team raised a massive €598for the club!
Special mention to the 11 athletes who qualified for the Irish Winter Championships 2020. This is a huge achievement for the swimmers and our club coaches… and another club record! Go, Bluefin, Go!
All times achieved qualify athletes to compete at Regional Development and Qualifying Meets in January 2021. These times will be valid until the end of January 2021, when they will need to validated at an “actual gala”.
