Windsor Swimming Club Chairman Rosie Rycroft said, “I’m immensely proud of the club.  The 2017 County Championships have been a fantastic start to the year and every one of our 47 swimmers who qualified put in a tremendous effort, not only in the pool, but also in support of their fellow team members.  While it is excellent to win medals, our ethos at Windsor Swimming club is to encourage all swimmers to achieve greatness whatever their goals, and it was wonderful to witness so many personal best times, team encouragement, friendship and sportsmanship over the  championships.”
