TRURO CITY ACHIEVE GREAT SUCCESS AT THE CORNWALL COUNTY ASA INTERMEDIATE GALA 2016

A very successful day for the Truro team with a whole hoard of superb swims. A couple of swimmers even managed to secure County entry times for 2016”,  Head Coach Emily Dart.

This year the Cornwall County ASA Intermediate Gala held at Penzance Leisure Centre was a buzzing busy affair and for those Truro City champsters who had hit the tight qualification targets it was a highly competitive meet.   For some Truro swimmers this was their first big gala experience and for others it provided a chance to swim in extra events from those they had already competed in at the Counties.  In a long day of fast and furious swimming Team Truro came away with pbs and medals aplenty.

TRURO CITY SMASH IT AGAIN FOR AN EMPHATIC VICTORY AT THE JUNIOR INTERCLUB 2016


With a clear victory of 60 points ahead of rival clubs Truro City oozed class and confidence across 9 – 12 year old age groups at the annual Junior Interclub competition held at Penzance Leisure Centre on Saturday 16th January.  

Truro City went in as reigning champions. This year all Cornwall clubs competed in the one gala, held over two sessions and covering individual 50m stroke events and team freestyle and medley relays with the exciting boys and girls freestyle canons (involving two swimmers from each age group) starting and ending the gala.  Each event had two heats and Truro City notched up an impressive amount of first places with the majority of other swims scoring highly in the top four helping to maximise points.  Team spirit was excellent and every swimmer was cheered on heartily by their team mates.  

Coach Emily was justly proud of her juniors for giving their all and many came away with PBs which bodes well for the rapidly approaching County Championships in February.  Click here for more details
