East Region Open Water Championships 2019!
Swim England East Region Open Water Championships took place at Whitlingham Park in Norwich on 21 July 2019. For some of our DSC swimmers, this was the first competition they had entered open water although there was a fair bit of training offered by senior coach Steve Kerr to get everyone prepared before the big day. Congratulations to all of DSC Open Water competitors who completed their races so brilliantly. Included were; Maisie Humphrey, Annabella Vassallo-Todaro, Bethany Harwood, Amy Shaw, Eloise Harper, George Wallis-Smith, Thomas Fantini and Simon Murray – well done to all.
