Having not been at a younger Gala for some time I (GITTE) can with hand on my heart say, it was a total pleasure. The swimmers were polite responsive and happy, it was hard to focus on some of the swims, we had a handful of very supportive parents watching cheering all our Garioch swimmers, that was super entertaining in itself.
Garioch Amateur Swimming Club held their Garioch Scotframe Open 200 Meet on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September. Garioch gloriously reclaimed the trophy by coming 1st out of 20 competing clubs, obtaining a staggering 657 points. The team stacked up a total of 15 gold medals, 13 silver medals and 16 bronze medals together with an array of excellent personal best times which contributed to the victory. This was achieved through great determination and support for each other further adding to the excitement.
