Burnham-On-Sea swimmers make a splash at regional gala

Burnham-On-Sea Swimming Club made a splash when their members took part in a regional contest at a new Olympic-sized pool this week.

The club had an invitation from Bristol Penguin Olympic Swimming Club to attend a relay gala at the new 50m swimming pool at Hengrove Park Leisure Centre.

44 swimmers from Burnham, plus a group of officials and parents travelled by coach to the event, which was the first gala to be held there.

"It was a great experience for the swimmers, especially the eight, nine and ten year olds. The fourteen and under boys excelled in all the strokes and had first places in all their relays," the club's David Pusill told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The final results were Bristol Penguins ‘A’ 300, Burnham 280, Norton Radstock 275, Bishopsworth 262, Wells & Shepton Mallett 255 and Bristol Penguins ‘B’ 161.
