But for the third gala of our club champs, things were a little bit different.
Yes there was fast, aggressive swimming. But it wasn't just about beating the person in the next lane.
Because after a few disrupted weeks where they hadn't trained so much together, our swimmers were happy to hang out with their mates and support each other as they tried to get PBs.
There was banter on the blocks and from the water.
And of course there was plenty of fast swimming, PBs came tumbling down and kids were clanking around the pool weighed down with medals.
Well done to all swimmers, you were awesome!
Next stop the LASAs!
