BRITISH GAS PARA-SWIMMING INTERNATIONAL MEET, GLASGOW, MARCH 2015

Porsha Jones, Reilly Shanahan and Tom Piggott were the 3 SASC representatives at the largest domestic Disability Meet of this season in Glasgow back in March. This meet attracted large teams from several nations across the globe and also doubled up as the trials for the GB team for the IPC World Champs later in the season. This all meant that the start lists for all events included a large number of international medallists and Paralympian’s.
Not to be fazed by the occasion, our 3 swimmers stood up and were counted ready to gain the results of their hard work.
Day 1 started with all 3 of them setting sizeable new best times in the 100m Free, followed up by Tom swimming to a new PB in the 100m Breast. Day 2 saw all 3 of them race the 50m Free and 200m IM with all but one of these swims again being strong swims and new PBs. Days 3 was the 100m Back for all 3 plus the 100 Fly for Porsha and Tom. This was the first 100 Fly long course for Porsha while all the other swims were once again new PBs and this continued on day 4 in the 400m Free for Tom and Reilly.
To post such a high PB rate in a high pressured and highly competitive environment shows just how well the 3 swimmers did and represented the club extremely well. Massive congrats to all 3!!!!!
