A swimming trio from Musselburgh Marlins enjoyed success at the recent GB National Para-Swimming Championships in Manchester.

Sam Downie won bronze medals for 100m backstroke and 400m freestyle in the S9 10-13 age group.

In the S7 14-17 age group, Neil Ferguson claimed bronze in both the 100m freestyle and 100m breaststroke.

Dylan Bleakley, meanwhile, just missed out on medals in the S14 14-17 age group, securing personal best times.

Danny Kirkham (pictured above with the trio), head coach with Musselburgh Marlins and one of the assistant coaches with the Scottish team in Manchester, was full of praise for the swimmers’ determination and their achievements at such a high level of competition.
