The Lions Feltham / Hanworth Gala 2018

by Nigel Grey Gala Reports

Held at Hanworth Airparcs Leisure Centre TW13 5EG

Sunday 18th March 2018

 

 

The Turtles Gala Team emerged victorious from a marathon gala event (lasting over 4 hours) at Hanworth Air Parc by winning the Junior Trophy,  finishing Runner-up in the Seniors and winning the Chairman’s Plate for ‘Outstanding Team Performance’.

This was all achieved against the background of one of the toughest weather weekends of the year.

A fantastic performance from our team of eleven swimmers who braved the elements to  finish as top club in very difficult circumstances.

The gala organisation was sadly lacking until Nigel Grey (hero!) stepped in to bring some clarity to the chaos and  ensure that we got home before being snowed in for the night!

Essie was the star of the show winning three Gold  Medals (Certificates), helping Dominic and  Matthew to win the Junior Championship.

Shaida was also a Gold Medal winner in the Senior Team who finished runners

up to Spartan New Malden.

Gary was awarded a special achievement medal.

 A truly brilliant performance.

Congratulations to the whole team!
