It was another successful day for CoPA at the ASA Masters competition at Rugby yesterday. The team (Ellie, Eloise, Fiona, Megan & Shannon) finished third to take bronze [video], Shannon took silver for her free solo and placed third in her technical solo, Megan & Fiona placed second for silver medals in their technical and free duets, and Fiona scooped gold medals for her technical and free solos.
Team CoPA triumphed again on Sunday with all swimmers making their mark on the competition. Results were split between the Yorkshire clubs and the invitational clubs and the results here represent the invitational clubs of which CoPA was a part.
In the 12 and under category, Daisy took gold for her figures and gold for her solo, whilst Natasha took bronze medals for both her figures and solo. Daisy and Olivia also took a gold for their duet. In the 13-15 category, Leah placed first to take gold in figures, with Izzy close behind to take silver. The two girls also stood side-by-side on the podium in the solo event with Leah taking gold and Izzy silver. Both girls cemented their partnership with their duet swim to earn themselves a gold medal. In the 15-18 junior competitive category, Rhea took silver for figures and another silver for her solo. Rhea and Tilly took gold for their competitive duet.
The medal count was sufficient to warrant a special award for CoPA in joint third place for the ‘most medals’ won overall in the competition. Considering that CoPA were by far the smallest club there this is a considerable achievement and is in keeping with CoPA’s ‘quality over quantity’ ethos. Another deserved result for CoPA swimmers.

An outstanding result for CoPA swimmer Daisy as she finished 2nd to take silver in figures at the first ever synchro Beacon Games in Bristol this weekend. The competition is open to swimmers from the regional beacon programmes as well as the England Development Squad. Five England Development Squad members competed in the games and Daisy finished ahead of three of those to place fourth overall. With the EDS members excluded for beacon results, Daisy ranked 2nd.
A brilliant result well deserved for Daisy, and another proud result for CoPA.
