Dyfrig Jones was our only representative at this year’s Cardiff International Meet that took place this bank holiday weekend.
It’s a great pool to swim in and a great gala to compete at and Dyfrig thoroughly enjoyed his experience of swimming long course in a 50m pool.
He swam well in the 100m Backstroke just missing out on a personal best but in the 50m Backstroke he took a massive 2½ seconds off his time. More importantly than the personal best perhaps was that he put into practice what he’d learnt in training –underwater phases is the key – as he was the last to surface after the start and in the lead!
Just goes to show, good underwater skills along with starts and finishes win races! Well done Dyfrig!
