For many years Jeanette Squires has been completely indispensable to the organisation of swim meets at Barnet Copthall. Until a few years ago she cooked ALL (well, nearly all, I gather Ian made the occasional dessert?!!) the food offered to officials at galas and this always to a very high standard.
Samsung have issued an advert featuring Paralympic athletes and their coaches. Included are copthall's very own James O'Shea and Rhys Gormley. James is shown swimming and Rhys is shown shouting at him... No acting problems there!
A really big PB for Anum Bandey in the Olympic 400 IM heat - she went 2.5 seconds under her entry time with a 5:34.64** .......... and, as a bonus, both Barnet Copthall and Rhys got a mention in the commentary! Well done Anum - hope you really enjoy your week.
** This time for Anum also broke her own Pakistan National record set at the World Championships - Anum's family are rightly very, very proud of her.
