Support GB Synchro and Water Polo Athletes!

CoPA has synchronised swimmers both past and present striving to represent their country as part of the GB synchronised swimming squad. However synchronised swimming and water polo were dealt a severe blow in 2014 when a major source of funding for these Olympic sports was cut entirely by UK Sport, leaving these athletes (or their parents) to fund the vast majority of their training themselves. Please take the time to complete the UK Sport public consultation survey on this topic which is currently under review and help to campaign for a fairer distribution of funding across all Olympic sports and hopefully synchro and water polo may once again be able to benefit from some much needed funding at national/international level.

It was an action packed weekend as CoPA travelled to Nottingham to compete in the National Synchronised Swimming Championships 2018. Although there were no medals this time, our girls did themselves and CoPA proud with creditable placings in this highest level of domestic synchro competition in the UK.  Results are as follows:

  • Rhea & Leah finished 9th in the free duet
  • Rhea finished 11th in her tech solo
  • Rhea finished 15th in her free solo
  • The CoPA free combination team (Fiona, Isabel, Izzy, Leah, Olivia, Rhea and Tilly) finished 10th

Great work girls!
