Chania, Crete was the venue for the Comen Cup on the 21st -25th July

 

 

Reading Royals' swimmers Jade, Sophie (then Rushmoor), Natalie and Rhiannon (then Portsmouth) all swam in the team that finished 12th in the Free final and 9th in the Combination.

The talent squad did a photoshoot prior to competition and some of the club related GB Swimstars images are left.

Sadly very few photos around of the Chania event. If anyone has any more we would be glad to put them up!

 

The venue was the Nautical Club and Chania itself looks very nice indeed. Anyone thinking about a holiday there - follow this link. A promotional video with some beautiful shots and with a syncho theme.

"This is the time of the year to look back at the past year and remind ourselves of all the hard work by swimmers and their coaches and the results we have achieved. The year would not have been possible without hard work of our Head Coach Di Hughes, Chief Choreographer Kate Coupar and their teams, who supported by our committee are doing a great job and our thanks go to all of them"
