Warrington Coach Wins Gold at 1500m Event

One of Warrington S&WP club’s own swimming coaches (Alec Glover) competed recently in a 1500M event. He decided to do it only doing breaststroke and came away with the Gold Medal in a time of 25 mins 43 secs. Alec said it was down to all his hard work doing the 50M training sessions, which the club hold once a month at Liverpool Aquatics. This has helped his stamina over this grueling distance and hopefully will inspire more of the club’s swimmers to attend this extra session. Please see Head Coach Shaun Woodward to see if you can attend the next session (details on club web site) as spaces are limited and on first come basis.
