Swim Winner

Posted on : September 17, 2021

Well done to TY student Killian Langton who won the County Sligo Swimming Club 3K swim race on Glencar Lake just before returning to school. Killian has represented SGS in swimming in the past and is a dedicated member of Sligo Swim Club. He trains 5 days a week and has been a consistent competitor in races around the country. During the pandemic he found himself unable to train in the pool, so, he took to sea swimming and lake swimming instead. The “Swimming with Sheila” group provided an opportunity to continue swimming during Lockdown. The club, run by Sheila Ryan, organises safe swimming routes both on the sea and lake, and was ideal for Killian to keep training. Now that he’s back in the pool he still swims in both lake and sea. Killian also teaches swimming with County Sligo Swimming Club. He is looking forward to competing again as we get back to  normality. Good luck Killian!
