National Championships 2012 - Report


The National Championships, organised by the ASA in mid-July, brought to an end a very successful season for our Sliema ASC Swimmers.  These championships were highly attended by all clubs and the number of swimmers that participated was very encouraging for the swimming in general.

Our club was represented by 31 swimmers, 4 of whom are national team swimmers. Another 4 of the 31 swimmers were out-of-competition, since they are non-Maltese. The first session was held on Thursday 19th in the afternoon. By then, it was already clear that all of our swimmers were well-prepared to show all their best effort.


In total our swimmers took part in 104 races and managed to obtain an impressive 20 gold medals, 14 silver medals and 24 bronze medals. The team spirit was very evident with all team members cheering their fellow blues in every race.
