A team photo of the club swimmers

This Saturday in the municipal pool La Nucia, Torrevieja swimmers competed in the Alicante Regional League. This time the Benjamin and Alevin aged swimmers had the opportunity to swim 50m and 100m freestyle, 200m Butterfly and the 4 x 100m Backstroke relay.

Two of the teams youngest swimmers Felica Sasso and Konstantin Murskiy raced for the very first time in the 50m Freestyle races. This was followed by Amy Connolly and Densel Fusha in the 100m Freestyle, Amy knocking 6 seconds of her previous time. Next to follow in the girls 100m Freestyle were Victoria Pigneur, Samira Lucumbi and Gabriela Pashova.

Both Vicky and Samira improved on their times and were placed 6th and 7th in this event. The two older girls Skye Burns and Paula Garcia both had good swims in their 100m Freestyle races. Both girls improved on previous times and Paula earning a regional qualifying time in the event.

The male swimmers of the club also swam well. Elian Del Rio Castillo gained 4th place a new personal best and regional qualifying time in his 100m Freestyle, a goal he had been working hard to attain.

Then Jacob Ruiz and Georgy Murskiy also had good swims in this event, Jacob knocking 11 seconds from his previous best time. Then to follow was the gruelling 200m Butterfly event testing the older swimmers of the day. This race is one not favoured by most swimmers as it is a difficult race, however the clubs swimmers did very well.

Elian came 5th in the event knocking 42 seconds of his previous time and Vicky and Paula unusually gained the same time except for 1 hundredth of a second, both gaining regional qualifying times in this event and Vicky placed 2nd for her age.

Lastly the girls swam the 4 x 100m Backstroke relay. Starting the race was Paula followed by Skye, Samira and Vicky. The girls raced well and gained 4th place. Well done to all swimmers!!
