Well done to the following who gained places in the finals and received certificates: Thomas Sleigh, Bobby Parkinson, Muhammad Ali, Josh Asal, Jenson Gibson, Dan Eardley, Rohail Robbani, Harvey Ashworth and Daniel Ainsworth.

Both Medley & Freestyle Relay teams finished 2nd.

I was particularly pleased with all the boys who competed for their school. They are fine ambassadors and demonstrate the spirit of QEGS: honour your commitment, roll up your sleeves and give your best. Very proud of you all.

QEGS finished 2nd overall with by far the largest team this year. Well done and thanks again!
