British Summer National Championships - 24-29 July 2018 – Ponds Forge Pool, Sheffield (50m)

Thirty-one swimmers from City of Glasgow Swim Team descended on Ponds Forge International Sports Centre to battle it out with over 1600 competitors from more than 300 other swimming clubs from across the UK, winning a total of 13 medals, after reaching 41 finals and setting 41 new personal best times from a total of 129 swims.

Fourteen-year-old Katie Shanahan was one of the stars of the meet after returning with seven medals. Taking on a heavy schedule that saw her race 26 times across the six-day event, Shanahan was in great form, capturing gold medals in the 100 and 200m Backstroke as well as the 200 and 400m Individual Medley events. The busy youngster then added silver medals in the 400 and 800m Freestyle events and a bronze in the 200m Freestyle. Shanahan’s times in the 200m Freestyle (2:04.10) and 400m Individual Medley (4:50.69) were both new Scottish 14 years Age Group records.
Fourteen-year-old Mark Ford was one of the club’s leading competitors when winning three medals – one of each colour. Ford, a pupil at the Glasgow School of Sport, captured the 15 years 50m Backstroke title with a very fast time of 27.20. He followed this up with silver in the 100m Backstroke and a hard fought bronze in the 100m Butterfly.

In the Multi-Class Para events, Andrew Mullen was using the meet as part of his preparation for the European Championships in two weeks time and was pleased to defend his titles in both the 50m Backstroke and 50m Butterfly. Fast improving S14 swimmer Gavin Roberts was also successful, racin powerfully to claim silver in the 100m Breaststroke event.

Lauren Wetherell has made huge progress this season and her new found experience and confidence showed as she demonstrated her versatility in the freestyle events. Competing in the girl’s 16 years section Wetherell placed fourth in both 800 and 1500m events, narrowly missing out on the podium in both. To this she added seventh place in the 200 and 400m distances. In the same age group, Serena Iheagwarem raced well to pick up fourth place in her signature event, the 200m Butterfly.
The club was well represented in many of the male backstroke events. Ryan Robertson reached the finals of all three 16 years backstroke races, placing eighth, fifth and tenth in the 50, 100 and 200m respectively, all in personal best times. In the 17/18 years section Joe Watt continued his good form making finals in the 50 and 100m distances where he finished seventh and eighth respectively. Watt, a recent Glasgow School of Sport graduate, also had a great swim in the 100m Freestyle, sprinting to a new best time of 51.72 and sixth place overall in a close race.

In the Boy’s 19/over events, Grant Henderson was in excellent form setting personal best times in all his events. His best result came in the 50m Freestyle where he reached the final and sprinted to eighth place in 23.26. Ryan Brown delivered determined performances in the 200m Butterfly and 200m Backstroke to finish fifth and eighth respectively.

The 19/over female section saw Glasgow Caledonian University podiatry student Emily Horne in good form reaching the final in three events. Horne raced to fifth in the 50m Butterfly, eighth in the 50m Freestyle and ninth in the 100m Freestyle. Glasgow School of Sport athlete Katie MacKenzie enjoyed one of the best swims of her career to make the final of the Girl’s 17/18 years 200m Breaststroke where she eventually finished tenth in 2:39.09. At the younger end of the meet, Elise McQueenie made it a successful debut at this level by making the final of the Girl’s 13/14 years 200m Backstroke, ending up with an excellent ninth place. Meanwhile, 13 year-old Saskia Wade introduced herself at this level with a solid swim in the 50m Freestyle that placed her fourteenth despite being at the bottom end of a double band age group.

The Club also performed well in some of the relay events, progressing to five finals, including an excellent fifth place in the Girl’s 14-16 years 4x200 Freestyle where Shanahan, Iheagwaram, Wetherell and McQueenie combined to break the Scottish National Junior and Club Junior records in a time of 8:31.93. The same four girls raced together to take tenth in the 4x100 Freestyle relay while the 17/over girls (Horne, Gulsum Onal, Anna Fleming, Robyn Crawford) put in a very competitive effort to finish seventh. In the boy’s 17/over category, the ‘A’ team were eighth in the 4x100 Freestyle (Henderson, Watt, Jack McComish, Martin McInnes).) and ninth in the 4x200 distance (Watt, McComish, McInnes, James Black).

Other swimmers racing in Sheffield were: Louis Lawlor (100m Butterfly, 200m I.M.), Marc Elrick (200m Butterfly), Tony Anderson (50m Freestyle, 50m Breaststroke), Connor Massey (50m, 100m, 200m Backstroke), Max Hagan (50m, 100m Breaststroke), Ross Neally (50m, 100m Breaststroke), Anna Fleming (50m Butterfly, 50m Freestyle), Gülsüm Önal (50m Butterfly, 50m Freestyle), Robyn Crawford (50m, 100m Backstroke), Cameron Muir (200m Breaststroke), Marshall Illingworth (1500m Freestyle), Lawrence Campbell, Gregor Swinney, Sandy Forysiak (all relays) were the other City swimmers in action in Sheffield.
Head Performance Coach, Ian Wright commented on the club’s results: “Once again we have improved our performances at this competition. It was a great team effort and to finish ninth on the medal table is very rewarding. Nevertheless, we are determined to return next year and achieve even better results.”
The majority of Glasgow swimmers will now enjoy a summer break from the sport before returning to training at the end of August.

Swim England Summer National Championships - 30 July – 5 August 2018 – Ponds Forge Pool, Sheffield (50m)
University undergraduates Marshall Illingworth and Sandy Forysiak competed for City of Glasgow at this meet. Illingworth swam a tough but well fought race to place fifth in the Boy’s 17/18 years 5km Open Water event, while Forysiak competed in the Boys 19/over 200m Breaststroke performing an excellent heat swim of 2:25.44 to qualify for the final where he went on to secure seventh place overall in 2:26.22.

European Championships - 3-9 August 2018 – Tollcross International Swimming Centre, Glasgow (50m)
Backstroke specialist Craig McNally raced for Great Britain at the European Championships held in Glasgow’s home pool at Tollcross. McNally, an undergraduate student at the University of the West of Scotland was in action in the Men’s 200m Backstroke. He swam an excellently paced heat swim to place 13th overall in a time of 1:59.58 – his third fastest ever performance for a morning heat. Unfortunately, McNally was the third ranked British swimmer in the heats and was therefore not allowed to progress to the semi-finals due to the two per country only rule.

European Para-Swimming Championships - 13-19 August 2018 – Dublin, Ireland (50m)
Paralympic medallist Andrew Mullen raced for Great Britain at the European Para-Swimming Championships held in Dublin, Ireland. Mullen, an undergraduate student at Glasgow Caledonian University was in action in three men’s events. Excellent swims in the heats and final of the S5 50m Backstroke earned Mullen the bronze medal, his time of 36.39 being the second fastest ever of his career. In the 50m Butterfly Mullen went one better, swimming powerfully to claim the silver medal in 37.28, not far behind the Ukrainian winner Yaroslav Semenenko. However, the 50m Freestyle posed a tougher challenge had Mullen had to settle for ninth place in the heats after a time of 36.83.

European Deaf Swimming Championships - July 2018 – Poland (50m)
Deaflympic champion Jack McComish was in action for Great Britain at the European Deaf Swimming Championships held in Poland in mid-July. McComish rediscovered his best form at just the right time performing extremely well throughout the week long competition and returning with a hat-trick of bronze medals. His medal winning swims came in the Men’s 50m Breaststroke, 100m Breaststroke and 50m Freestyle. He also reached the final of the 200m Breaststroke and was the key swimmer for Britain in all of the relay events.

28 June to 1 July 2018, Tollcross International Swimming Centre, Glasgow
City of Glasgow swimmers are celebrating after earning the prestigious title of Scotland’s top club when winning the overall team trophy at the Scottish National Open Championships last week in the famous Tollcross pool! The squad (a record 55 strong) produced some fantastic performances to finish with a total of 18 medals (5 gold, 8 silver and 5 bronze) and 50 finals from 334 swims (including 70 personal best times) helping the club finish top of the final club points rankings for the first time in their history!

snag2018 compressed

Promising junior swimmer Katie Shanahan was one of the leading swimmers capturing an impressive Scottish Open title in the 400 IM, three Scottish Senior titles (200 IM, 400 IM, 200 Backstroke) and four Scottish Junior titles (200 IM, 400 IM, 200 Backstroke, 400 Freestyle). For good measure, her times in the 200 and 400 IM were both new 14 years Scottish Age Group records.

Further Scottish Senior titles were won by Emily Horne (50 Butterfly), Marshall Illingworth (1500 Freestyle) and Ryan Brown (200 Backstroke), with Brown also collecting the silver medal in the 200 Butterfly. In addition, Martin McInnes was awarded the ‘Eileen Adams Trophy’ (a trophy very special to City of Glasgow Swim Team named in honour of the club’s former head coach) for the best combined performance in the Men’s 200 and 400m Freestyle events after winning silver in the 400 and placing sixth in the 200.

As well as Shanahan’s four wins, there were more Scottish Junior titles for Mark Ford (50, 100, 200 Butterfly, 100 Backstroke), Lauren Wetherell (200 and 1500 Freestyle).

Relay teams played a big part in the overall success with the club reaching the relay podium on five occasions, as well as claiming three Scottish Junior relay titles. Silver medals came from the Senior ‘A’ team (Horne, Gülsüm Önal, Anna Fleming and Robyn Crawford) in the Women’s 4x100 Freestyle and the Junior team (Shanahan, Wetherell, Serena Iheagwaram and Elise McQueenie) in the Women’s 4x200 Freestyle, which also claimed the Junior title and set a new Scottish Junior record time of 8:37.44.

The Senior Women’s 4x200 team (Horne, Önal, Fleming and Kirsty Griffiths) took bronze behind the Juniors and these were backed up by further bronze medal winning relays from the Senior ‘A’ team in the Men’s 4x100 Freestyle where McInnes, Grant Henderson, Joe Watt, and Gregor Swinney combined to good effect and the 4x100 Medley where Watt, Brown, Henderson and Cameron Muir were the successful quartet. In addition, both Junior Medley teams won the Scottish Junior titles.
The club was well represented in the multi-classification para-swimming events with Louis Lawlor and Gavin Roberts both having outstanding meets. Lawlor secured gold medal swims in the 50, 100, 200 Freestyle events as well as the 50 Backstroke, while Roberts picked up silver after a determined swim in the 100 Breaststroke. Lawlor’s performances in the 50 & 100 Freestyle and 50 Backstroke were all new Scottish Para-Swimming records for the S14 category.

Head Performance Coach, Ian Wright commented on the club’s results: “The team is absolutely delighted to win the overall top club award at this meet. It had been one of our longer-term goals but it was not something we expected to happen so soon. It was a week where both our senior and junior swimmers were strong, with several athletes breaking through at this level for the first time. We will now look to continue the good form at the Scottish and British Summer Meets later this month.”

mphillipsNow that the COGST Long Course Graded event is over it is time to show our appreciation for the person who pulled it all together and made it happen - our Meet Director and Club President Marjorie Phillips.

Most people are not aware of the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to run a meet especially if this is the 1st one which the club has run for many years.

Marjorie worked tirelessly to organise:

  • Volunteers - to cover all of the jobs before during and after the meet
  • Technical officials - to ensure that all sessions were covered and accredited
  • Hire of the pool, catering and facilities at Tollcross
  • Equipment required to run the meet - laptops, printers, watches, radios, clipboards etc.
  • T-shirts for volunteers to identify the helpers
  • Buying Water and sweets for everybody who was helping
  • Liasing with the West District, Scottish Swimming and Glasgow Life to ensure that all the requirements were met
  • Co-ordinating all of the activities "on the day" to ensure that the meet ran smoothly

It was a fantastic effort and a job well done to Marjorie.

The Committee, Coaches members and parents would like to thank you for your hard work in making this such a successful meet.

Thank You 300x300Huge thanks to everyone who helped to make our Long Course Graded Meet such a success at the weekend:

To all the volunteers who came along over the weekend and marshalled, supervised warm ups/swim down pool, sold entry bands, staffed tombola, organised medals, ran live results, printed, photocopied, and staffed entrances to changing village/galleries etc.

Special thanks to Brian and Stewart for Meet Entries and AOE – they did a great job in the run up to the meet and keeping things running smoothly all weekend in the glass box.

To Ian Faulds for spending all weekend as announcer – hope you’ve still got a voice!

To our senior swimmers Katie, Elise and Serena who did a great job as runners and selling start sheets.

Special mention to two of our foundation swimmers Rose and Callum who did a fantastic job all weekend keeping the technical officials supplied with sweets and water – always with big smiles on their faces!

Thanks to Lyndsey, Gerry and Paul and all of their staff at Tollcross for their help over the weekend.

To WrightSport for running the swim shop.

To the West District and to Lynn Alderton for advice and support during the planning stages for the meet. For my first time as Meet Director, it was great to have people to answer the silly questions!

To Janice, Liz, Jean and all of the other technical officials who gave up their weekend to support us – we couldn’t have a meet without them.

Finally, thanks to all the coaches and swimmers from both COGST and the 33 other clubs who came along and supported the first meet which COGST have run for eight years. We hope you enjoyed it, got lots of PBs and will come back next year!

GDPR 600x400 compressedBackground

GDPR is an important change in government legislation regarding data protection and stands for The General Data Protection Regulation. It effectively provides an update to the Data Protection Act, bringing in new requirements and increasing the penalties for breaches. Any organisation that is required by law to comply with GDPR must do so by the 25th May 2018 at the latest. This law doesn’t only cover businesses, but sports clubs as well, since clubs, too, handle sensitive personal data their members trust them with.

GDPR will impose strict controls on how all organisations collect and process personal data within the EU and/or personal data of EU citizens. The UK is expected to enforce the full range of GDPR requirements.

The regulation outlines six key principles for organisations that process individuals' personal information. These are that data shall be:

  1. processed lawfully, fairly and transparently
  2. collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes
  3. adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for processing
  4. accurate and kept up to date
  5. retained only for as long as necessary
  6. processed in an appropriate manner to maintain security

Does this apply to our club?

The GDPR applies to any “data controllers” or “data processors”. Those are technical terms but, in essence, if you collect any personal data in running your club (which you will do if you have any members) then the GDPR will apply.

What does this mean for me?

There is an updated Privacy Policy for the website which provides more detail on our policy and procedures to safeguard your information.

What do I need to do?

One of the key points in GDPR compliance is that "Active Consent" should be given to hold, manage and process personal information. All members who wish to register on the website will be required to give consent to this. If consent is not given then an account cannot be created. Consent can be withdrawn at any time, but if this is done then your account will be removed.

How do I do this?

When logged into the website, click on the Member Services -> Change User settings link. Then tick the box in the Additional Settings tab to say that you agree to the Terms and Conditions of website membership.

What if I don't do this?

If you haven't given consent by 1st April 2018, then your website account will be removed.

Further updates will be sent out in regards to your general Club Membership and any actions that are required.
