A BIG well done to our FAST swimmers (pictured above) from Ammanford Leisure Centre who completed the Amman Valley Sprint triathlon back in April and have competed in many other competitions since.

Through the FAST sessions, these members have gone to great lengths to improve their swimming;

  • James started in our adult swimming lessons before progressing to FAST sessions which he now attends regularly.
  • Jon, Richard and Simon could only swim 25 metres and would have to stop for a rest when they first attended the sessions in November, they too attend the sessions regular.

FAST sessions are ideal for those who are competing for the Masters, triathlons or Ironman events. The sessions give swimmers support and guidance on improving their swimming skills and techniques so they perform the best they can in their competitions.

The swimming improvements among these members has been remarkable.

The whole group have also succeeded by competing in the open water sponsored charity swim in North Dock beginning of May, swimming a total of 1,500 metres. They also competed in the Llanelli triathlon and they are already looking for the next challenge. A big well done to all of them!
