The last weekend of January saw the lifesaving team push their skills at Welsh Nationals held in our very own Wales national pool.
Teams from all over Wales fought for the top spot, there were even some appearances from a few English teams and members of the GB squad. What makes lifesaving different to other sports is it’s a multi-disciplinary sport in which competitors have to hold a lifesaving qualification to compete. With rope throws and manikin tows lifesaving competitions are far from boring.
The squad who entered the Welsh Champs for the first time worked hard, there were other Swansea Lifesaving members competing in local teams and they did the club proud too! This was an excellent warm up for student champs which are also being hosted in Swansea this year on the 11th and 12th of March is anyone wants to come to check out a new sport!
