Midland Mencap win 5 Gold Medals for Swimming!!


Midland Mencap win 5 Gold Medals for Swimming!!
 
On Saturday April the 12th five swimmers representing Midland Mencap headed to Halesowen pool for our first ever swimming gala.


We had four swimmers entered into five races and huge congratulations to all four who came away with a total of 5 gold medals. First up was Nagina who had entered a width with assist race. Next we had the 33 meter front crawl races that Jason, Scott and Andrew entered. Lastly we had Andrew again who had entered the 33 meter breaststroke race.


Although they were all very nervous beforehand they over overcame nerves by supporting and cheering each other and with the encouragement of the supporters.

 

Winning  five gold medals at the gala was a wonderful achievement but more importantly everyone had a fantastic evening!


I would like to thank all the parents and friends and staff who did a brilliant job of supporting our swimmers. I would also like to say a massive congratulation to our swimmers who all deserve a big ‘pat on the back’ to go with their gold medals.


Well done everyone,

Laura
