LDS SPRING SWIM GALA
Saturday 30th March saw the annual LDS Spring Swim Gala take place at Mercat Gait Centre, Prestonpans. Entries for this event are always high and this year was no different with swimmers from the following clubs taking part - Lothian Racers, Loanhead Dolphins, Lothian Waves, Livingston & District Dolphins, Musselburgh Flyers, Musselburgh Marlins, Swim-IT, North Berwick Swimming Club, Allstars ASC, Knox Academy and Borders Barracudas.
The event saw plenty of success with many swimmers achieving new personal bests whilst some swimmers took part in their first competitive races.
Medals were presented on the day by Lothian Special Olympics athlete Shannon Crosbie. Shannon has recently returned from the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi where she won a gold and silver medal as part of Team GB. Our thanks go out to Shannon and I'm sure she will have provided some inspiration for many of our competitors. A thank you is also extended to the officials time keepers, announcer, club coaches and volunteers for supporting the event and allowing everything to run smoothly.
