Well done to Annabel, who is Swimmer of the Month for November.
Annabel has been working hard on her technique consistently over a long period of time.
Recently, the coaches have challenged her to step up to the next level and really push herself in some of our more challenging sets.
She has more than risen to this challenge, moving up to lane leader for some of the sessions and really impressing with her determination to get through the sets.
A very impressive month - keep up the good work Annabel.
Swimmer of the Month (Oct) - Emily Hill
October's Swimmer of the Month is Emily.
Emily has been working very hard, week-in-week out for a LONG time now and the rewards are now really starting to show.
A well-deserved promotion to Performance squad in September has been followed by big PBs in all events since then.
A true example of hard-work paying off - well done Emily.
National Success for KGSC Masters
A 17 strong team from Kidlington and Gosford Swimming Club took on the best the UK has to offer at the Swim England Masters National Championships at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
The team won four national titles - 2 each for Greg Bird (200 Freestyle and 100 Fly) and Ian Surrage (100 & 200 Breaststroke).
They also took home 6 silver and 12 bronze medals, breaking 17 county records in the process.
This earned the team 21st place overall (out of over 250 teams).
A number of the squad will now turn their attention to representing Oxfordshire and North Bucks at the upcoming Inter-Counties championships.
Swimmer of the Month (Sept) - Abbie Morton
Well done to Abbie on being awarded Swimmer of the Month for September. Abbie has not missed training since making the move to Competition squad and has pushed herself in every session - particularly during the more challenging sets.
Congratulations to Jasper, who represented Oxfordshire and North Bucks at the Swim England National County Team Championships.
Jasper was KGSCs only representative - recovering from a broken arm just in time to make the squad.
A fantastic achievement - we're all very proud of you Jasper!
