ON 6th of July the Barry Beavers Disabled Swimming Club travelled to Ebbw Vale to compete at the rescheduled Blaenau Gwent Otters Swimming Club gala.

There were eight medals won on the day which were an good effort for the team considering that they weren't an full team and some swimmers had to stand in for some of the events they don't normally compete in.

With the medals won there were 2 golds, 2 silvers and 4 bronzes.

The Swimmers and the events they competed in and those who won medals were as follows:

Golds: Nicholas Cushen Mens 100m Gold, Jnr Relay (Kiera Dyne, Jack Kemp, Callum Savory and Ffion Jones) Gold

Silvers: Holly Willis Girls 50m Silver, Ffion Jones Girls 100m Silver

Bronzes: Callum Savory Boys 50m Bronze: Jen Thomson Ladies 50m Bronze: Jack Kemp Boys 100m Bronze

Snr Relay (Heather Williams, Kyle Siirak, Abby Finch and Nicholas Cushen) Bronze

The other team members on the day were as follows:

Jamie King, Siabhon Watkins, Suzanne Haslam, Nadiene Dyne, Tom Burley, Gareth Lloyd and Aidan Thomson.

During the medal giving presentation the Women's 100m event was left last and everyone stood up and applauded in respect of their club members from the host club that they'd competed in at galas.
