Two of three Open Water National qualifiers travelled to Rother Park last weekend to take part in their first National competition. Unfortunately Leia Griffiths had other plans in Florida….. but James Andrew and Ryan Lawrence took to the lake like ducks to water.
Both boys had swum very well at the Regional event to qualify for the National competition but no one envisaged how well both boys would perform at their fist National event.
With 32 swimmers competing in the 12 year Boys age group the boys goal was to swim fast, enjoy the competition…. And not come last!
The boys did a superb job swimming to James, 16th place in a time of 22.13 and Ryan 23rd place in a time of 22.45. These are the highest places out of so many swimmers Tigersharks have every achieved in Open Water, a superb achievement.
Congratulations from everyone at Tigersharks
