2012 Cornish Nipper Stillwater Results

Wow – fourth place for Hayle at the Nipper Cornish stillwater! A great result and lots of medals too. All participants will get a certificate, which will be handed out next week at training.  We will endeavour to also take a team photo at swimming next week  – we will aim to do this just before the second swimming session – those who swim in session one can leave the pool a few minutes early if they wish.  The results will appear on our website soon.

A huge well done to all those who competed – many of our team competed for the first time and everyone put in a great effort. Well done to a certain individual who had to be cajoled (some might say nagged or told they were doing it!) into the manikin race and gained a silver medal – no chance of getting out of the manikin relay next time, young man! A great result by all, as everyone helped to get points to help us to our fourth place overall, well done to you all.

A huge thanks to our club officials – Gaynor, Martin, Simon and Gerard. Thanks also to my happy band of team manager helpers – Vicky, Amy, Tegen, Bethany, Daisy, Isla, Tina. Thanks to all the parents for their support. I would also like to say a huge thank you to all those who have trained the nippers and encouraged them to get to the start line in the first place – Maggie, Emma, Graham, Gerard, James, Tim, Gaynor, Gil. Sorry if I have forgotten anyone.

We can now all look forward to the Nationals at Cardiff in April – consent forms to follow this week. We would like to get the entries sorted as soon as possible to ensure that we have lots of time to practise and fine-tune all events. The pairs and teams will be picked on the basis of the Cornish results for those who were there. If you were unable to attend the Cornish, training times will be used. Picking the pairs and teams way ahead will mean that we can practise with the correct partners over the coming weeks, so please get your forms back early.

Once again, well done to all. Bring it on, Cardiff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
