City of Leeds scoop 43 medals in a successful weekend full of Christmas cheer.

Unlike last year where an unfortunate power outage cast a dark shadow over our annual Christmas Cracker meet, this year’s competition ran smoothly, thanks in no small part to the many volunteers who gave up their weekend to help make the meet a success. A big thank you to all volunteers from everyone at the club!

As for the swimming, well done to City of Manchester Aquatics who won the Top Visiting Club Award and were presented with the Kevin Glassford Memorial Trophy by Linda Glassford. City of Leeds claimed 43 medals in total. Congratulations to all our medallists!
