Midsummer Madness and Surprize Gala Report

Diss Otters sent teams of swimmers to two galas over the weekend, with a team of thirteen competing in the City of Norwich Midsummer Madness Meet on Saturday and a squad of thirty taking part in the Team Ipswich Surprize Gala on Sunday.

First to Norwich, which was a long course (50m) gala and out of a total of 70 swims the Otters swam 36 new personal best times, with 26 top 6 finishes, coming away with 14 podium medals.

The action at Crown Pools in Ipswich on Sunday was in the short course 25m pool and saw Diss swimmers compete in 158 races with 82 pbs, 53 top six finishes and of that total 24 were medal positions.

Next weekend sees a small but intrepid group of Diss Otters head to Whittlingham Broad in Norwich for the Regional Open Water Championships.

This event sees the end of the Season with the action reconvening in September.
