Sputniks Round 1 a Great Success

Very well done to all swimmers who competed at round 1 of the Satellites’ Sputniks Gala Series last night. For many of these young swimmers the Sputniks is their first experience of competitive swimming. Even so, there were some very good swims with many of the very youngest even completing 100m Individual Medley races. It was really nice to see so many smiling faces at the end of each race! The Satellites swimmers achieved a huge number of personal best times and put in some really great performances in the relays too.


This has been the most popular Sputniks gala to date. Thank you all for entering and to all the parents for supporting the swimmers. There was a very good atmosphere with the swimmers supporting and cheering each other on too – especially during the relays!

A very big thank you also to all of the volunteers and officials who helped organise and then run the event on the night – including many of the older Satellites swimmers. With so many swimmers entering it was a very busy night but it worked flawlessly.

Well done to all and we look forward to seeing you all again for Round 2 on the 24th March! Keep training hard to get even more PBs! The entry pack should be up on the website in the next day or two.
