Grangemouth Sports Complex was host to Forth Valley Disability Sport Regional School and Club Swimming Gala on Saturday 4th March 2017.
Clubs and schools from throughout the Forth Valley and Lothian Area entered teams to compete in 25m, 50m and 100m events in freestyle, breaststroke, butterfly and backstroke.
The event was very well attended with every swimmer having a fun and enjoyable time.
85 swimmers competed in the event to a very high standard. Many of who achieved the qualifying times for the Scottish Disability Sport National Swimming Championships that take place later this year.
The competition was very close and there was very little time between placing in many of the events, which made for a great atmosphere and lots of cheering from the spectator’s gallery.
Jim “The Swim” Anderson, 17-time Paralympic medallist, and Angus Whyte, Forth Valley Disability Sport Chair Person, presented medals to swimmers and everyone that participated received a certificate.
Many thanks must go to the many club volunteers, time keepers, marshals and officials for their assistance at the event.
Thank you to the many organisation and groups that support this event – Scottish Swimming officials, FVDS volunteers, Falkirk Community Trust, Clackmannanshire Council, Active Stirling.
