The ASA East Region Open Water Championships took place in Norwich in July with 11 Harpenden swimmers participating. We were thrilled with the results, especially as it was the first time swimming in an Open Water competition for Maddie, Joe, Jonny, Dan Todd & Megan. Some swimmers moved up a distance this year: Caitlin moved up to 3km, and George and Max moved to the 1.5km. There was a huge rivalry between Jonny, Dan and Dan which was entertaining to watch.....Jonny is very happy he won!
Well done to all our swimmers!
