Swimmers with a Physical Disability and Sensory Impairments

Saturday 18th April - Grangemouth Sports Complex, Grangemouth.

Lothian entered a small team of three to this year's Senior Swim Championships for individuals with a physical disability or sensory impairment.  Due to a variety of reasons, the Branch were only able to enter three swimmers to compete for the team trophy at Grangemouth and found significant success throughout the afternoon with Laura Pilkington, Robert Dalgleish and Stephen Clegg compensating for the lack of numbers with some quality performances.

During the early session, Laura Pilkington looks to have recorded a PB in the 50m Back while Robert Dalgleish also swam superbly in the same event in the male race.  However it was Stephen Clegg who continued the form that seen him record a number of PB's at the British Para Meet last month, breaking the SDS Championship record in the 50m Back with a time of 30.86s.  The Edinburgh based swimmer also narrowly missed out on the 50m Fly record by 0.03 seconds - a good performance considering the East Lothian Swim Team Captain had been struggling with a stomach complaint prior to the competition.

The swimmers from Lothian continued their good form during the latter sessions of the competitions, picking up medals on their way to a very respectable third place finish behind West of Scotland and the overall winners, Fife.  This finishing position was testament to the performance of the team on the day, only falling behind the significantly larger teams from West of Scotland and Fife.

Lothian Disability Sport would like to thank SDS and the event officials for the smooth running of the day.  Thanks is also extended to Lothian Racers' Don McFarlane, who took the responsibility of Head Coach for the region.
