NEWQUAY Cormorants are celebrating again after another impressive performance at the last weekend of the Cornwall County Swimming Championships.

The Cormorants entered 28 swimmers to race across the final two days at Penzance and Bodmin pools. 

Every member of the squad competed admirably with some really great swims in races that spanned from 50 to 400 metres in all strokes.

Cormorants came away with a total of 18 gold, 23 silver and 11 bronze medals from this weekend, with some fantastic individual performances, putting a couple of their swimmers in the top 10 in Great Britain.

Despite having a relatively small squad, the final tally of medals across the Cornwall ASA Championships was 56 gold, 51 silver and 19 bronze.

Additionally Newquay Cormorants now have 10 swimmers qualified for the South West Regional Championships and a couple of others hoping to join them.

Cormorants swimmers continue to go from strength to strength and are now looking forward to racing in the 50 metre long course pools against some of the best swimmers in the country over the next three months while their younger swimmers continue to compete locally.

A club spokesman told the Voice: “This level of achievement is as a result of rigorous and consistent training under the expert coaching of Ian, head coach and Sue, junior coach.
