Recent Meets in Hereford and Cardiff

Monnow Swimming Club win more medals


Since the Monnow Swimming Club Championships in June the swimmers have continued to compete in The Hereford Open Meet on the 7th of July and The Cardiff Bay Sprint Meet in the 50m pool on the 14th July.


In Hereford Katie Cameron and Laura Willis won 3 gold medals, Lucy Creasey won 1 gold medal and 2 silver medals and Nanci Edwards won 2 gold medals, 2 silver medals and 2 bronze medals.


A week later in Cardiff the club won a further 15 medals.  The pinnacle of this meet was the 200 IM in which the 10 fastest competitors who had accumulated points in other races were selected to compete in this event.  Six Monnow swimmers were able to qualify and they included Emma Goddard, Matthew Lynch-Warden, Nanci Edwards, Rhys Townson and Elliot Lynch-Warden and Emma. Nanci Edwards did particularly well winning the 200 IM in her age category.


The swimmers will be back in action after a well deserved short summer break
