October was the month that the clubs open meet competition took place . This is a popular open meet with many visiting clubs and some strong competition. One of our club swimmers that stood out most particularly and is our October swimmer of the month, is Giselle Martin

Giselle swam some fantastic races most particularly the 100 fly in which she obtained a personal best time, she then went on to beat her personal-best time for the 100 fly in the fly split of the 400 IM with beautiful streamlining and fly kicks off the wall at every turn, Giselle had great success in the pool. Giselle's swimming at the Flitwick open meet was a brilliant example of transferring all the skills that had been worked on in training into a great performance in the actual racing event.

Well done Giselle, well deserved swimmer of the month October
East Region Masters: A successful day out for our Dolphins Masters swimmers  last Sunday 30th September; 7 swimmers with 25 swims, achieving 11 Gold, 11 Silver, 2 Bronze and 5 County Records.

The swimmer of the month for July is a swimmer who trains very hard indeed and really smashed it at the BWSC Open Meet at the weekend, setting massive PBS in the 50, 100 and 200 backstroke, and getting a Winter Regional qualifying time in the process.
