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
Congratulations to Rosie who has been selected to be part of the England Junior Squad following her trial in September. We look forward to watching her progress over the coming year.
Three of our swimmers – Rosie R, Ariana S, Megan P will be attending the GB trial tomorrow.
Best of luck from all of us!
Well done to all the girls who took part in the grading at Southgate last week. In the grade 1 category Ema zilute, Rose Gormanly, Emily Heap , Catrin Papanastas passed with a bronze. In the Grade 5 assessment Rosie, Ariana and Megan Parker passed with a silver and Evie, Antonia and Megan Cosgrove passed with a bronze.
First and foremost, well done to everyone who competed in the Nationals this year, you should all be very proud of yourselves.
We did incredibly well winning four medals:
Alex Weir & Christina Maciejewski were able to swim their duet in 15-18 category and the 13-15 competitive team came 6th place out of 17 with a very respectable routine score of 59.5333.
We also are very excited that three of our girls: Rosie Rallings, Carla Pietrafesa and Lily Halasi have been invited to trial for England.
Thank you to all the volunteers (parents and team mates), who dedicated their time to ensuring that the competition ran smoothly (from coaching and team managing to helping with hair and assisting with the running of the event).
