Warriors swimmers Coral Farrell and Adele Maguire travelled to Ponds Forge in Sheffield last weekend to represent the North West in this year’s National Event for disabled swimmers aged 10-18. Over 200 competitors came from all over the UK to showcase their talent. At just 10 years old the girls were competing in the Girls 10-13 year age group. Standards as always were very high with 2012 Paralympic qualifiers such as Ellie Simmonds competing for their Regions. There were British, European and even one World Record was broken. Coral, who was recently accepted onto the GB Talent Programme, managed to improve on her already outstanding times and secured herself 7 Medals (5 Bronze and 2 Silver) and despite coming in with GB Talent times she missed out on 3 Silver Medals because of the -1 rule. Adele, who is currently on the North West Talent Programme, is now a GB Hopeful as she managed to secure GB Talent times for 100M Breaststroke & Backstroke. Adele also came home with a medal haul of 3 Bronze, 3 Silver and a Gold, missing out on 2 Silver medals due to the -1 rule. Both girls took part in the North West Region Relay Teams with the 400m Freestyle Team coming in 3rd and the 400m Medley Team for the first time in recent history came in 1st earning Adele a Gold and pushing Ellie Simmonds and Wales into 2nd!
A massive well done goes to both girls for such a superb performance!
