Congratulations Freya, Scarlette and Israr!
Swimmer & gymnast of the year 2022
After a challenging 2022 we wanted to round the year off with some good news stories. We asked all of our Swimming and Gymnastics Teachers to nominate those distinctive, very special swimmers who deserved a bit of recognition.
They were asked to identify swimmers on our lesson programmes (children and adults) who have displayed positive attitudes, unyielding determination or, have put in efforts over and above their peers. They may have overcome personal adversity or achieved something unexpected or challenging.
Freya Hills - Wycombe Leisure Centre's junior swimmer of the year 2022!
Israr Azam - Wycombe Leisure Centre's adult swimmer of the year 2022!
Israr started lessons back on 2019.
At the beginning Israr was very nervous about even getting into the water. He was just getting over this when Covid hit. When things opened back up, he had to almost start again by overcoming his fears.
However, he did and now has been rewarded by being moved into the Improvers class.
He is very positive and willing to try new things.
Well Done, Israr, keep up your good work.
