This gala at the London Aquatic Centre in early November was a premier winter Short Course meet which attracted international competitors as well as Olympic finalist Aimee Willmott.
Although this is still early season, Leander swimmers showed fantastic form and stepped up from last year. We used this gala as a training meet reinforcing pre- and post- race strategies. We still came away with the club’s first medal at this meet – Kirstin’s Bronze medal in the 100 IM. She also achieved a National Qualifying Time for the Winter Nationals in 50 Fly, our first Winter National qualifier. In addition, Leander swimmers achieved 60 Personal Best Times, reached 12 Finals and broke 9 club records.
Our Finalists were:
- Kirstin in 100 Fly, 100 IM, 50 BS, 50 FL
- Tyler in 100 BS, 50 FL, 50 BC
- Megan 100 IM, 400 IM
- Mia 100 BS
- Jordan 200 BS
- Jack 200 FL
Many thanks to Leander volunteers and spectators supporting this meet and our Team. One Team, One Dream.
