Once again the Treloar’s swim squad took part in Guildford Swimming Gala. Three swimmers took part: Daniella (who joined us from Alton College), Daisy and Lily. Altogether the squad won 5 medals.

Daniella swam 5 races, one being her first IM (individual Medley is one length each of backstroke, breaststroke and front crawl). The IM was her first race and definitely the toughest as she only uses her upper body to swim. She swam good times in the other four races, narrowly missing out on a bronze medal.

Daisy had two races; her first ones in a 25m pool and swimming on her own. She swam well, finishing each race and winning a Bronze for her backstroke race. Lily had four great swims. This was her first gala in a 25m pool for a few years and she won a medal for each race – two silvers, one gold and a bronze.

This is a great achievement for our swimmers as the other swimmers at the gala were more able with learning disabilities instead of physical disabilities.
