Gotland Island Games 2017

As is usual at this type of competitions our swimmers always excel and perform admirably against very tough competition which in some occasions are at a different level altogether.

During the first 2 days of competition all swimmers have had their time in the pool and have had a taste of the competition with some personal best achieved and national records broken.
