SWIMMERS in the Vale of Clwyd have shown off their talents in a regional event.

Recently, members of Denbigh Dragons Swimming Club travelled to Llandudno to take part in the 2020 Swim Wales North Regional Championships.

There were two weekends of swimming spread over six days.

However, the final day was cut short due to the storm at that time and was rescheduled March 6.

The results from the Denbigh Dragons who took part were fantastic and they were much improved compared to 2019.

The Dragons retained the same spot in the overall top team standings, behind many of the larger populated clubs in the region.

Denbigh had 31 swimmers at the meet, with an average age of 13-and-a-half years and they competed in almost 200 events.

There were 139 personal best swims from Dragons, which was an amazing 70 per cent return.

Denbigh Dragons swam in 47 finals in the 50 and 100m events.

A lucky tally of 13 gold medals was achieved, backed up by 12 silver and six bronze.

In addition, a clutch of Denbigh Dragons were just off the medals, with 11 finishing in fourth position.

Following the end of the meet, Denbigh was listed in sixth position out of 19 clubs.

It was a brilliant meet for Ewan Leonard, who was the top 11 year old boy competing.

Dragons achieved nine meet records over the course of the weekends, five of which came from Ewan - in the 50m and 100m butterfly, and the 400m, 800m and 1500m freestyle.

The other meet records were supplied by Sian Evans (50m and 100m freestyle) and Gleb Yablokov (50m and 200m breaststroke).
