Midsummer Madness Gala 8-9 July


Another weekend another swim meet for Diss Otters Swimming Club. This time it was the Midsummer Madness meet held at the UEA SportsPark. For some of the 25 DOSC swimmers this was their first experience of competing in an Olympic Size (50m) swimming pool. They all relished this opportunity producing some of their best performances of the season. We had multiple 40+ second personal bests produced in the 200m and 400m events and a huge 70% of swims resulted in personal best times.

What is great to witness is the huge amount of effort in training beginning to show through in competitions. New races skills executed, pacing spot on and every swimmer fighting for the wall and attacking the last 5m of the race. Well done to Noah, Hollie and Donald who all picked up medals this weekend.

Head Coach Laura said,

It is great to have the large number of swimmers yet again dedicated to competing this weekend. We have had some amazing performances, but the nicest thing is watching our swimmers be supportive, encouraging towards each other. The team spirit we demonstrate is brilliant”.

There is one final meet of the season before our summer break. The Great Yarmouth and Norwich Swans Sprint meet. A great opportunity to finish our season on a high.
