On Saturday Woking Swimming Club held its Winter Diddy Championships, for Associate members aged between 6 and 10. For many swimmers this was their first competitive swimming gala and they delighted their families watching in the packed gallery.
All 36 events were raced over one length of the pool. 17 swimmers achieved one or more first places; special mention to Eleanor Pollock (9) who was first in all four of her races, to Ellie Macleod (6), Hannah Pye (8), Matthew Thompson (9) and Kayah Gough (10) who each came first in three races. Leonardo Turata (6), Evie Owen (7), Galahad Reeve (8), Benjamin Whiddett (8), Sebastian Bigham (10) and Freddie Sawyer (10) each collected two first place ribbons. Zac Larive (7), Ryan Turner (7), Lucy Wheeler (7), Nancy Baker (7), Lauren Small (8) and Tom French (9) each collected one winner’s ribbon.
All swimmers swam their best, and even those who didn’t pick up an award this time all received a special ribbon for competing. Many thanks to our senior swimmers for looking after our Diddy swimmers. The swimmers really appreciated having our older swimmers poolside helping and encouraging them.
A huge thanks also to all the helpers, both white and red shirts, that volunteer to make this happen.
We hope all the parents and swimmers enjoyed seeing the older swimmers in the final heats!
