Sharks Shooting for the Stars

On 26 November 2015, St Chris Sharks took on the H2O challenge to compete in their Autumn Cup Swim Competition. We travelled to Doha just after the unusual rain storm to find our original venue flooded, the competition altered and our coach unable to make the journey. However, that did not dampen our spirits or hold us back. After hearing words of wisdom from our inspirational swimming coordinator, Mrs Lodwig, and the impressive warm up capabilities of Miss Lambert, helped by our senior swimmers, our Sharks showed the competitors who was boss! After Day 1 of the Competition, we had won 3 Gold, 9 Silver and 8 Bronze Medals.
