Gina runs the Brighton Marathon
(Posted on Tuesday, 14 April 2015)
Congratulations to coach and Masters Swimmer Gina who ran the Brighton Marathon on Sunday to raise money for Diabetes UK. After many months of hard training Gina finished the 26 mile course in 4 hours 38 minutes. On target for a 4 hour finish up until 20 miles Gina sadly took on too many energy gels and was feeling quite unwell by mile 21 and unfortunately was walking by mile 25. Gina has raised over £280 for Diabetes UK and would like to thank all who have sponsored. If you'd like to donate; click the link below.
Well done Gina on finishing a tough race.
Congratulations Sam Harvey

Kents 2015 - Week 3
(Posted on Wednesday, 04 March 2015)
Another weekend spent at Medway Park - and the atmosphere was still buzzing at the start of the third weekend of the County Championships and another successful weekend for team Ojays. There were some fantastic swims with new pbs being set in almost every race and great camaraderie poolside.
Session 6 started on Saturday with the girls 50 fly - competing were: Samantha Jackson, who won herself another silver medal in the 9 year age group, Jessica , Lilli, Clio, Anna, Jess, Katie, Kate, Issie and Niamh - delivered some really fast & furious swims - well done ladies. This event was swiftly followed by the girls 400 free in which Ojays were represented by Lilli, Daniella, and Kate who won a silver medal in the 16 year old age group - well done girls in this tough endurance event. The last event of this session was the boys 200 breast: Eddie, Callum and Ben competed posting some great times. After a brief break session 7 started with the boys 50 fly with our two younger boys Eddie and Callum competed in the 10 & 11 year age groups. Next up was the boys 400 free and Eddie was swimming again and smashed his PB earning himself a silver medal in the 10 year age group. Ben competed in the 14 year age group and again achieved a great PB - well done boys. The last event of the day was Clio competing in the ladies 200 breast.
Session 8 started on Sunday morning with the ladies 200im with Clio, Daniella and Katie representing Ojays. Next up was the boys 100 fly with Callum, Ollie and Billy - good swims all round - the boys are pictured relaxing poolside before their event. Last event of the session was the ladies 50 back and the team had lots of entries - they were: Samantha, Matilda, Ellie, Rachel, Lilli, Anna ( who won a finalist medal) Clio, Niamh, Issie, Katie and Daniella.
The final session of the weekend started with the boys 200im - Eddie, Callum, Justin, Billy, Ben and Ollie all competed with lots of new pbs being achieved. Ladies 100 fly saw two medals being won by Katie and Kate who both received finalist medals for their 6th and 4th respective places. Also competing with great times were Clio, Niamh, Anna, Jess, and Molly. The weekend wrapped up with the boys 50 backstroke - with the threesome of Eddie, Callum & Justin representing the younger boys and Ben, Josh & Ollie the older boys all with some very exciting swims.
Thanks to Sergio & Simon for their poolside support, to Mandy for officiating and of course to parents for their unflagging support from the balcony for hours on end .....!
Well done team Ojays - one more exciting weekend to go!
