18 swimmers competed at the Kingdom Invitation for Askeaton Swimming Club on November 29th.
An early start saw many sleepy heads on a bus trip to Tralee, but that’s where the tiredness ended. A fairly packed schedule saw a total of 18 events to be run.
Our swimmers competed in 62 swims and collectively gather 42 personal bests, 1 gold, 5 silver and 6 bronze medals. For a competition where the aim was technical improvement a good set of statistics to read. And a well deserved trip to Jumbos in Listowel on the way home to replace the energy used saw team spirits rise.

For Askeaton Swimming Club and its competitors this meet was about exposure to high level swimming and there was plenty of that over the weekend.
