Last night Carnegie Swimming Club held a race night in order to raise funds for our warm weather training camp to Fuerteventura next February. The night was very successful with the club raising over £800.
Last weekend I went up to Garioch with my team mates for our first competition of the new season. With only a few weeks of training behind me this season I wasn’t expecting much. Despite not expecting to swim relatively fast, I still managed to get a few pb’s and swam much better than I expected across all my events. Overall, most of Carnegie Swimming Club swimmers that were at the competition performed much better than expected and as a result we won the overall trophy for top club.
I’d like to thank Jean Ritchie at ASDA Kirkcaldy for all the work she has put in arranging the bag packing at the store in the last few weeks. This has been a really busy period the last few months. I was in Fuerteventura with my club mates preparing for the Olympic trials in London (great experience – even made the TV by reaching the semi-final of the 200IM!!). After that I was in Sunderland for the Scottish National Age Groups. Held in England because we could not get access to a 50m pool in Scotland……… I had a successful meet winning 9 national titles in the 50,100,200 & 400 Free. 100 & 200 Butterfly. 100 & 200 Backstroke. 200IM.
I kept the swimming training going during the period of my exams, results will be out in August. We are now only a week away from the ASA Youth Championships and will be travelling down to Sheffield on Monday. Hopefully I will swim fast!
