On Sunday 5th January, we took a team of Stocksbridge swimmers to the little Olympics Gala at Ponds Forge.
 
This is the first time Stocksbridge have sent a team to this event which is an introductory swimming gala for children from all swimming lesson programmes in Sheffield.
 
We took 16 swimmers (quite a big team by comparison) and we are super proud of each of them.
 
We had a gala practice session over the Christmas holiday and everyone was well prepared..
 
As a bonus, they won 2 Gold, 2 silver & 2 bronze medals along with 5 ribbons for being placed in the top 6 from their event.
 
Well done to all our swimmers!
