Corsham Open Meet, December 2018 – Head Coach Report

A team of 34 Bath Dolphin swimmers competed in the Corsham Open meet over theweekend of 8th and 9th December, 2018.

It was the first taste of open meet swimming for many of the Junior Squad’s younger swimmers but they, along with some more ‘experienced’ swimmers from the Senior Squad ranks, performed to a very competitive highstandard.

Along with a whole heap of pb’s they amassed 34 medals in all! A third of the swimmers were placed in top 3 with 16 gold, 10 silver and 8 bronze medals. A special mention must go to Henry, who, in his first open, snapped his goggles whilst getting onto the block for a swim, kept his cool, borrowed some goggles, put them on, dived in and they filled with water and he went on to compete the 100 Breaststroke!That’s what I call stepping up to the plate.

Well done to all those who gave their all in their races and were a credit to themselves, their coaches and the Club.
