Scottish Open Meet picture in Aberdeen
Scottish National Open
Over the last couple of months the junior and national swim squad from Dumfries A.S.C. have attended the Scottish National Open Championships, held in Aberdeen. This was a 4 day event and is really exciting to be racing alongside some big names in Scottish Swimming like Hannah Miley, Ross Murdoch, Duncan Scott, Kathleen Dawson and Stephen Milne to name a few.
This is one of the biggest events in Scottish Swimming as it is the last competition before the worlds, ensuring that it is fast paced and competitive. The team swam exceptionally well under the guidance of head coach Anthony Ryan and team managers Kathleen Procter and James McLeod, who made sure the swimmers were rested, fed and race ready.
Scottish Summer Meet
Then 2 weeks later 12 swimmers were invited to the Scottish Summer meet, held in Edinburgh Royal Commonwealth Pool. They are amazing athletes and came away with 18 medals in total and all managed to make finals and produce pb's and achieve new club records which is pretty amazing.
British Summer Meet
Owen McBurnie, secured a place in the Brittish Summer Meet , held in Sheffield Ponds Forge. He got through to the finals which is a fantastic achievement and came in 10th place.
Well done Owen!
