...... well, maybe not 'of Copthall' - although we would all rather like that. It was reported today that former Barnet Copthall swimmer and multiple Paralympic gold medallist Chris Holmes has been made a Life Peer. It would be nice to think that this was for his services to Barnet Copthall Swimming Club but it was probably because of his work as Director of Integration at the London Olympics. Many congratulations to him from everyone at the club.
Good luck to Amber Ormerod, Miranda Willis and Gemma Hunter who go in todays ASA Open Water Championships. We wish them warm (ish) water and less aggression from other competitors than seems to be the norm in the senior events!
