Stockport Metro Synchro Swimmers, Annie Lu, Floella Dixon, Marisa Whitehurst, Alice Foster, Kadie Randell, Grace Lu, Gabriella Jackson & Jasmine Jones were selected for the North West Beacon Squad Programme following their great results at National Age Groups in November. They have been attending extra training sessions with the Beacon Squad over the last 6 months, working on land training and synchro specific technical work.
Fifteen swimmers from each region attend the Beacon Games competition, this year held in Aldershot on 31st May. Six swimmers from Stockport Metro were selected to represent the North West. 12 & under swimmers Annie Lu, Floella Dixon, Alice Foster & Marisa Whitehurst and 13-15 age group swimmers Gabriella Jackson & Grace Lu.
The North West Region came 3rd, with less than one mark between regions placing 1st to 3rd. All the synchro swimmers did really well in their age group figures.
Stockport Metro’s Evie Walker has been training with the England Age Group team and swam an amazing team routine in the display before the Beacon Games started. Evie also competed in the 13-15years age group and came 3rd out of 85 swimmers across the country.
Well done to all the Stockport Metro & North West Beacon girls!
