A mention goes to Isabella Amison who became ill on Friday and had to pull out of some races. She gave it her best shot.
Finally, a big big well done goes to Daisy Cook. Daisy won 4 gold-A, 1 silver-A and 2 Bronze-A in the 9 yr old age group.
Her 50mtrs, 41.30s and 100mtrs, 1.29.90s backstroke times made it to 3rd and 5th fastest time in the Uk on the Swim England rankings.
Rotherham Metro put on a very well organised gala which ran very smoothly, Ponds Forge is an excellent setup and invaluable experience for the swimmers.
