National Swimming Success for Grange Students

Grange students Jay Cushen and siblings Gabriel and Tyler Melbourne-Smith all came away with fantastic medal hauls from national swimming competitions which took place over the Summer holidays.

Year 10 student, Gabrielle Melbourne-Smith, attended the British Summer Championships in Sheffield where she came away with a silver and a bronze medal for the 50 and 100 metre butterfly races. She was joined in Sheffield by fellow Year 10 student, Jay Cushen. He swam personal bests in every race and came away with 3 gold medals (1500m freestyle, 200m individual medley, and 200m butterfly) more than any other competitor in his age group!

There was barely time for Gabrielle to catch her breath before she headed straight off to the Welsh National Championships in Swansea where she captured 3 golds, 4 silvers and 2 bronze medals in a seven-day consecutive championship swim. She was joined there by her little brother and Year 8 Grange student, Tyler, who walked away with an impressive collection of medals which included 11 golds and 1 silver!
