Broughton sent a team to the annual Edinburgh Schools Swimming and Diving Gala, held at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.
We had a very successful morning! All 3 of our teams swam their very best, were enthusiastic and great sports.
The freestyle team were 7th in their heat, while our breaststroke team qualified for their final and ended up finishing 7th in their final.
However, our backstroke team had the best result! They won their heat by a mile, and stormed to victory in the final, winning by over 5 seconds! The team won a gold medal each for their brilliant victory, and were presented with their medals on the podium, just like in the Commonwealth or Olympic Games!
Here are our team members-
Amy, Callum, Jess, Mhairi, Innes, Zuzanna, Ines, Eilidh, Roisin, Louis, Daisy, Yaseen and Jed.
Well done to the whole team for excellent participation and behaviour! You did Broughton proud!
Thanks and praise must also go to Mrs Ramm our PE and swimming specialist, who prepared the team so well for this event!
