German School Swimming Gala

Date 23/05/2013

18 May 2013 dawned as a cold dreary day. It ended with our boys keeping our cup on home ground. Hu ha.

We had 8 schools participating and our boys took the winners' cup: Oliver, Markus, Mwangi, Daniel, Joshua, Max, Timon and Karl. Regulars and new swimmers, all part of one team, one forces to be reckoned with. Our standard girl's team of Lucia, Ilana, Njeri and Radina obviously won their events and relay. Had we had the sheer numbers of Mountain View School, we would have taken the girls winners' cup. Second place is not to be poo pooh'd at either as we were helped by Laila, Abby, Ahana and Melanie, all first time swimmers.

That was the point. We supported our own. We have new blood and a big hurrah goes out to these first timers, who had the courage and the determination to try and succeed. For some of them, just finishing a length, was the achievement. BRAVO! This combined with supervision and nurturing will give us the numbers to clear the medal table in total, next years.

Special thanks go to parents who helped with presentation, and marshalling; Henrike, Job and Woki and all the parents who send their kids to participate and cheered all our kids on. Outstanding success, if we say so ourselves! Same time, same place, next year?

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Bernard for his help, over and above the call of duty.

Kind regards,

Arlene
