Online Q & A Session with Olympian Antony James
We would like to announce that on Tuesday 23rd March at 6.30pm we had a live Q & A session on Zoom with Olympic swimmer Antony James, or AJ as he is more widely known. Lots of our club members joined him for this fantastic opportunity to find out what it takes to train towards your goals, how a time out of the water can be overcome and what it was like to make the Olympics. AJ missed a big chunk of swimming when he was 16 years old, being out of the water for nearly 10 month

Thankfully it did and they agreed to award us this fantastic amount. We have just 11 day
