Aquavision’s new masters squad sparkled at Swim England Synchronised Swimming National Masters Championships. The six-person combo featuring Margaux, Kerry, Kendra, Giulia, Rebecca and Hannah took home gold for their electric tango routine. Giulia scored a second gold for her tech and free solos to The Sound of Silence and The Great Gig in the Sky. The London-based masters squad is currently recruiting for next year, so get in touch to find out more!
A massive thank you to our Master coach Martina who worked tirelessly to help them achieve the goal!
Aquavision Masters Swimmers are competing in Ruby today at the National Masters competition. We are swimming a combination team and have a solo entered in the competition.
The two under 12 solos both did very well today and both secured medals. Carla won the gold medal which was one of 4 gold medals she got over the competition. Lily also had a great competition and secured a medal in all events. Lily’s solo won the bronze medal. They were swimming for London Region Squad and both showed off their potential as young swimmers.
Carla and Lily were then joined by their team mates Aisling and Olivija to swim the under 12 Happy Feet team. This team normally swims with 8 swimmers and was adjusted last week at High Wycombe Camp to swim as a team of 4. The girls adjusted quickly and knew they would have to give an outstanding performance as they would start with a 2 point penalty for having less than 8 swimmers. However they all had outstanding figures results and this put them in a good position. The team swam very well and we are please to announce another GOLD medal.
6 swimmers travelled to Scottish for the National Championships this weekend.
4 of our under 12 National Squad took part in the competition today. They competed in both figures and duet. They have plenty to celebrate as Carla and Lily won the gold medal and their team mates Aisling and Olivija won the silver medal. This was after a successful figure competition, where Carla won the gold medal and Lily the silver. Aisling came 5th and Olivija 6th in figures. The team and solos swim tomorrow and we wish the girls the best of luck. They are certainly starting in a positive position after great figure results.
Irene and Ariana also competed in the competition and it was great to see both swimmers scoring well in figure and finishing in the top end of the competition. Irene came 17th and Ariana 22nd.
well done girls
