Belper Marlins were in action in Sheffield as they battled with hundreds of other swimmers during Rotherham Metro’s Grade One gala.

Only the best swimmers in the Midlands could attend with just a handful from Belper managing to make the cut.

Caitlin Oram, Samuel Brookes, Katy Dymond, William Brookes, Cameron Haynes, Sarah Dymond and Joshua Horobin all were in attendance.

All managed to reduce their personal bests with outstanding swims in the massive pool.

Caitlin Oram managed to get a club record … only to be pushed off her podium by her friend Katy Dymond two minutes later.

But it was no rest for these two girls as sandwiched between the weekend event in Sheffield was the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Club League Competition. The Marlin’s did not disappoint the cheering crowd at this club team event.

Against local rivals from Derby Pheonix, Ripley, Chesterfield, City of Derby and Sherwood Colliery they put up a massive fight.
