CMK swimmers make a splash as they come second in Witney


A group of 39 swimmers, from City of Milton Keynes Swim Club competed in the Richard Early Cup Gala at Witney.

The positions were closely fought but the performance from the CMK team was very impressive, especially at this early stage of the season.

There were plenty of wins across the age groups, bringing big cheers from the supporting fans, with the highlight being a rousing victory in the final cannon relay - with eight girls and eight boys swimming in age ascending order.

The evening saw the CMK team win 21 of the 41 events securing overall second place to Hillingdon SC, one of the best performing clubs in the region.

Team manager Gail Ashley said: “All the swimmers involved swam out of their skins and there was great team spirit throughout the evening

“Well done to everyone involved and a fantastic cannon win!”
