Swimming County Finals

My swimming gala experience by Freddie Y6

Following the local cluster swimming gala at Billingham Form where I came 3rd place,  I was surprised to qualify for a  place in the County finals to represent Stockton Northfield, at The Dolphin Centre in                 Darlington.

My Grandma supported me at this event . There seemed to be so many more spectators than last time and that made me a little nervous.

I was called up to do my warmup laps and was informed I would be swimming as part of a relay team, both medley and also freestyle.

My first race was the medley relay , I swam the breast-stroke.  We did well but unfortunately we just missed out coming 4th.

My freestyle event was announced…

‘On your marks… get set… go!’  The klaxon sounded .  When I was swimming, I could here all the supporters cheering. I even think I could hear my Grandma cheering me on!

I would like to thank the rest of the team and  congratulate them  on their efforts.  Thank you also to the organisers.
