SPORT Pembrokeshire held a successful Pembrokeshire Schools Disability Swimming Gala at Fishguard Leisure Centre.

Sponsored by Stena Line for the 16th year, there was a fantastic turn out and support, with nearly 40 children from eight Pembrokeshire primary schools and secondary schools taking part.

The gala gave disabled children a wonderful opportunity to showcase their skills and participate in a range of swimming styles.

The children took part in 10 events with lots of heats ranging from 9m assisted float to 25m and 50m breaststroke, freestyle and butterfly.

The swimmers’ times were all recorded and it is hoped that some participants will be identified to sign up for the Swim Wales Para Talent ID programme.

Sport Pembrokeshire have thanked a number of people for their support and encouragement on the day.

They are John Havard, swimming teacher at Fishguard Leisure Centre; Ryan, Sion and Connor, lifeguards and helpers from Fishguard Leisure Centre; Anne and Bob Adams, Swim Wales officiators; Saskia Peterson, Swim coordinator; Amy Brumby, Swim Wales; eight Young Ambassadors from Ysgol Bro Gwaun ; and Gareth Mills Bennett from Disability Swim Wales and Nick Russell one of Pembrokeshire’s Development coaches, who both presented the medals and certificates.

The organisers also thanked Stena Line, the gala’s key benefactor for their incredible support.
