Cracking Christmas Cracker

The Monnow team was out in force at the annual Christmas Cracker event this year. For some of the swimmers it was their first time in a competition. The adrenaline was pumping from the start with PBs being smashed from the very first event. The Monnow swimmers won many of their heats and held their nerve, even when races had to be restarted.

At the end of the day, after hundreds of races Monnow swimmers were high on the rankings, Matt was 7th in his age group, Rhys was 8th in the 11 and under boys, Alice was 9th in 13 and under girls, and with only just turning 13 that sets her up for a great year ahead. Joe topped the day off with Silver in the Pentathlon, giving the Monnow team plenty to be proud of.

Well done team
