Leicester Penguins report

Lincoln Vulcans also competed at the Leicester Penguins Open Meet this weekend, with predominantly age-group swimmers (14 and under) dominating the heats and medal awards. With the new short-course season in operation the junior swimmers are already in hard training ahead of County Championship qualification and the meet presented the perfect opportunity to test progress and review development of both technical skills and race performance.

A total of 13 Gold, 16 Silver and 19 Bronze medals was underpinned by consistent improvements in individual personal best times from every swimmer taking part. Age Group Performance Coach, Andy Mason, stated “it was particularly pleasing to see so many of the messages from training being carried forward by the young swimmers into their races. There were many stand-out swims and the large improvements in many of the swimmer’s best times is a testament to their excellence and hard work and to the fantastic team of coaches, supporters and parents we have at the club.”
