City of Leeds Open

Well done all who raced at the Co Leeds open meet over the weekend. A young team of 15 swimmers raced in multiple events and distances showing good team spirit and determination. Well done to our more experienced swimmers who acted as great mentors to the younger swimmers too.

A total of 56 personal best times and a lot of new times shows great development of the squad. Its good to see lots of different events being raced and putting yourselves in new situations.

Team Ilkeston came away with 22 medals; 11 gold, 7 silver, and 4 bronze! Considering the large amount of swimmers at the meet, it is a great squad achievement. Well done all, and thanks to poolside team and our judges.
