It has been a fantastic summer for DIS swimmers. Mia Slevin, one of our younger swimmers, was selected for Team GB in the European Youth Olympic Festival. She had a sucessful festival making it through to four finals. Great experience and an exciting future ahead.


Esther Halford took part in the 5km open water Swim England National Championships. She was competing up in the 17/18 years age group, against much older and more experienced girls but still achieved 7th place. Also at this event was Ryan Reader who claimed the bronze medal. An amazing achievement in what was only his second open water race.


Summer Kennedy took a bronze in the 100m Butterfly in a lifetime best swim at the Swim England National summer meet. This was an even greater achievement if you take into account that she had made 4 finals the week before at the British Summer championships. Great achievements in what was a new focus this season on 100/ 200 events.
