CoPA Compete at ASA National Synchro Championships

Three CoPA swimmers had a great weekend at the ASA National Synchronised Swimming Championships in Nottingham last weekend.  In this, the top level competition in the UK, Rhea ranked 17th in her figures, whilst Tilly placed 32nd and Leah finished 42nd.

Rhea’s score qualified her as one of 12 swimmers to swim their free solo, whilst Tilly also swam in the technical solo.  Rhea and Tilly also swam their duet for which they placed 6th.  A tremendous result of which CoPA is very proud.
