Written by Richard Edwards   

Monday, 13 October 2014

This gala was held at Easton Leisure Centre and was the 1st of three rounds of this

series of galas. There are the same six teams in each of the rounds and

 the total points for the three rounds decides the final order of the teams. The final

round is on Saturday 13th December at Easton.

This round was an a standard format and Bristol Henleaze was involved with two other galas on the day which meant we fielded a team of 34 swimmers some of whom had never competed in a gala for our Club before.

The age groups were 10/U, 12/U 14U and Open. Our swimmers were restricted to 2 individual swims and relays in their own age group but they could swim up in higher age groups. The last event was special 8x25m freestyle relay. It was an 8 leg cannon with a boy and girl from each age group swimming.

We had 8 first places and 11 second places in this 51 event gala. There was a total of 17 PBs in the individual events.
