Synchro club really in the swim – with medals galore!

It has been another successful year for Portsmouth and District Synchronised Swimming Club which trains at three pools – Churcher’s College in Petersfield, Redwood Park Academy in Cosham, and Fleming Park Leisure Centre in Eastleigh.

The club entered four teams into the National Synchro Combo Cup at the London Aquatic Centre on July 7. The 13-15 team won silver medals in their age category for the second year running.

The 15-18 team came fifth in their age category (missing out on a medal by 0.1667).

The 12 and Under team were placed 16th and the 15 and Under team were placed 14th in their age categories.

Then on September 22 it was pretty much a clean sweep of the medal table at the SE Regionals for Portsmouth and District Synchro Club. The club dominated the top 12 places in the 13-18 figures with Isabel Benson, Emily Jupe and Marianne Shaul winning the gold, silver and bronze medals respectively.

The 15-18 team won gold medals too for their routine to “That Man” by Caro Emerald.
