Louth Swimming Club’s second annual biathlon

Swimmers from Louth Swimming Club proved they are not only swim fit but run fit as well, on Sunday 30 July. Sixty four swimmers took part in the Club’s second annual biathlon. The biathlon, which this year was kindly sponsored by Gas Solve limited, saw swimmers, from all of the Club’s squads including a member of the Masters Squad, Helena Heya, competing in a 400 meter swim at Meridian Leisure Centre before putting on their running shoes and running 4 laps (1mile) of Wood Lane field.
All those who competed were awarded with a medal and trophies were awarded to the fastest boy; girl in each age group, Harry Milne & Olivia Anstey (9 & under), Jake Adams & Effie Kennedy (10years), Luke Brampton & Lucy Housman (11 years), Reuben Heywood &; Phoebe Payne (12years), Christen Rook & Izzy Leggate (13years) and Owen Hall & Katie Roscoe (14years and over).
Bob Wells, Club Chairman said it was wonderful to see so many swimmers competing & enjoying themselves. Although this event was purely for fun, the determination from all the competitors to do well was clearly evident and even the threat of showers didn’t dampen the swimmers or the spectators enthusiasm. Bob added the biathlon was an enjoyable way to end the Club’s successful
swimming year. Event organiser Charlotte Elliott Wright commented that following last years success, the number of swimmers participating had increased and she too was impressed by the determination of the swimmers to do well & for some returning competitors to try & improve upon their times from last year. Charlotte wished to thank all those involved with helping organise and
run the event and also the event sponsors. If you would like any further information about Louth Swimming Club please e mail enquiries@louth-dolphins.org.uk
