Large Lothian Team Achieve Medal Success in Glasgow

SDS National Junior Championships for Swimmers with a Learning Disability

Tollcross Swimming Pool, Glasgow - Wednesday 19th November 2014

Tollcross Swimming Pool played host to the SDS Junior Swim Championships for swimmers with a learning disability yesterday.  The Commonwealth Games venue provided an ideal setting for swimmers to showcase their form in the pool and give them a taste of swimming in such an impressive environment.

Lothian were able to enter a team of 37 swimmers after using the Regional Schools Swimming Competition as a qualification event.  The Regional event welcomed entrants from 14 schools across the region with 71 young people swimming at Dalkeith School Campus.  This allowed swimmers from Briadburn, Cedarbank, Drummond CHS, Meldrum PS, Preston Lodge HS, Prestonpans PS, Saltersgate, Spark of Genius, West Calder HS and Woodlands the opportunity to swim at the National event.

The team were successful with many athletes picking up medals and achieving personal best times in the water.  Christian Buchanan of Lothian Racers and Musselburgh Amateur Swimming Club continued his fine development, with a string of impressive performances against more senior athletes.  There were also medals for athletes making their debut at the event, with Amy Moffat of West Calder HS and Lucas Harthill of Preston Lodge HS claiming silverware in their respective events.  Saltersgate School were the most successful overall in terms of medals won, with swimmers Seth Downs, Jordan Milton and Jade Reynolds among those taking their prizes back to Midlothian.

Special thank you goes to the organising team at Scottish Disability Sport, the officials and support provided from the local college and centre staff for making the day so enjoyable for all those who were able to attend.
