Swimming must be the Best sport, looking at those pics, the week in Spain is at the half-way mark and swimmers are having a wonderful time training in the sunny pool of Torremolinos Sports Abroad.
The first Olympic swimming took place in 1896 in the Bay of Zea but was only available for women since 1912 in Stockholm Sweden.
Now we do start to recognise that swimming has a beneficial effect on health for all ages and school children learn better when swimming.
There are now many swimming competitions held all year round and our next big event will be the London Regional Championships held at the London Aquatics Centre and Crystal Palace.
The swim camp in Torremolinos is an extra special Easter break treat and prepares nicely for the competitions ahead, culminating in the British Summer champs, European Champs.
for a young swimmer the world is an oyster. All option and chances are available to be exploited and the release today of the 2018 British Swimming Selection policies for
- 2018 Junior Champs in Helsinki 4. – 8. July
- 2018 European Champs Glasgow 3. – 9. August
help us focus on the future of our sport, rather than dwell on sad spots in the past.
Though it is important to learn the skill of dealing with emotions, the focus on the season ahead always helps to take a deep breath and swim.
