To quote from a master and guru of competitive swimming:

“I wouldn’t say anything is impossible. I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and put the work and time into it.”

This year the CPS swim team certainly set a new course for others to follow with 8 finalists competing in 6 events the team came home waving 2 x Gold medals, broke personal best times, and on the day glided up through their rankings to sit within the elite 1st -15th national positions against regional swimmers and top swimming schools.

A well-deserved congratulations to our finalists for getting up super early last Saturday morning or arriving late afternoon to battle hideous London traffic congestion and then nervously wait for their solitude moment to shine in one of the most inspirational UK swimming arenas.

These results are down to a sheer commitment to training, staying focused, and belief in oneself and their team.

Congratulations to you all.
