Synchro Multi Regional Competition 2018

This was run by London this year and took place at K2 Pool Crawley, Sussex. It ran fairly smoothly, but overran on both days. There were technical issues with the music which was too quiet at the start of the solos and also the underwater speaker did not appear to be working correctly, all swimmers were complaining. Also no one has the full results as yet!

Entries were down on last year with 10 clubs taking part. Standards were high with some hard fought competition.

For the South West, Bristol and Cheltenham entered both figures and teams. Bristol entered solos and duets in the 13-15 and 15-18 age groups but not the 12U age group.

The 13-15 and 15-18 yrs figures were completed on the Friday evening and Bristol did well with Zoe Dimond coming first (6th overall) Lilly Todd second and Abbey Wilcox third in the SW 13-15 age group

In the 15-18 age group Greta Hampson came first and first overall, Grace Cruickshank came second and Daniella Lloyd third.

Saturday started with the under 12 figures and for Bristol and the SW Robyn Ashworth came first, Grace Hiscutt second and Amelie Williams third.

Next followed the solo and duet competition Bristol entering only 13-15 and 15-18 solos and duets.

Abbey Wilcox the only 13-15 entry in the solo category came first for SW

In the 15-18 solo’s Greta Hampson impressed and came first in SW and first overall with Daniella Lloyd second and Grace Cruickshank coming third. Greta was also presented with the Josephine Mitchell cup.

In the 13-15 duets Zoe Dimond and Lilly Todd came first with Laurel Allen and Abbey Wilcox (Sarah Perks R) second.

The 15-18 duets were won by Greta Hampson and Daniella Lloyd who also received the overall medals and the Centenary Trophy. Cerys Hughes and Anna Sledge came second.

The final event was the free teams and Bristol won the 12 and under team.

Bristol first and the overall medals, Cheltenham second in the 13-15year teams.

Bristol also came first in the 15-18 team, but were beaten by Reading Royals for the overall medals.

All swimmers did very well and enjoyed the experience and hopefully they will improve their scores at National Age Groups at the end of the month.
