Karl says: Well done to everyone who swam at the Neate Meet at the weekend. We had 21 swimmers across 86 races. There were some brilliant swims along with a few county times, but a few disappointed faces, we are less than a month into the season and I know we will turn those frowns upside down. Faith was also swimming at Parkside in the Cambridge Grand Prix gala with her blue hat on 🙂
