DSE NATIONAL DISABILITY CHAMPIONSHIPS – MANCHESTER – DECEMBER 2015

Reilly, Tom Piggott, Porsha and Ffion once again represented SASC at the annual Disability National Swimming Champs. As these champs are now held long-course, it was their first chance to compete against fellow para-athletes from across the country in a similar environment to that they will be in when it comes to trials in April. Reilly raced in 5 events, setting new best times in 4 of them, the best of which came in the 400m Free, where he achieved a huge new pb and went over 400 points. Tom competed in all 6 events, posting times around his best in 4 of them and new pb times in the 100Free and 100 Breast. Unfortunately Ffion was ill during the week of the champs so despite some positive and strong racing, she was off her best times. Porsha had some strong performances across the 2 days and was on her best times across the board. Furthermore, she achieved Gold in the 100m Breast and Silver in the 400m Free in the 13/u age group. A positive start to the para-swimming season by all 4. Good work guys!!
