A group of Oxford swimmers travelled to Abingdon on Saturday afternoon to compete in the Vale Cup. This gala is a great opportunity for the swimmers to gain more experience in relay swims. A noisy and action packed gala was held with swimming in U10, U12, U14 and Open age groups, boy and girls. Swindon Dolphins took an early lead chased by a changing 2nd, 3rd and 4th places, and took the Cup in the end as follows:
Gill Cadle went along to this fun packed gala to watch and was overheard on several occasions praising the swimmers for their skills. Several of the younger swimmers in particular showed great promise in their underwater phases on their starts.
A great fun evening out.
