Paignton swimmers had an amazing experience, meeting and competing against Olympians Chad le Clos and Max Litchfield, plus other international swimmers at the Dawlish and Dinnaton Open Meet on 9th and 10th July. Eli and our Club Captains Harry and Isobel took them on in the individual 200 backstroke, 50 free and 50 backstroke respectively and our relay teams held their own in the cannon races, which also included these superstar swimmers. As the photos show, they couldn’t have been more generous with their time and support, inspiring everyone with their amazing skills and friendly approach.
The team clocked up a massive total of 51 PBs, with a huge medal haul to recognise their efforts and achievements. Further congratulations should also go to Eli for winning his hot heat and to Phoebe for winning the “chuck-a-duck” competition!
Many thanks to our newest team managers Jo and Debbie for helping to keep the show on the road.
We’d love to see more photos of our swimmers with the stars, so please head over to our Facebook page
and post away!
