Ruta Meilutyte voted Devon ASA swimmer of the year 2013

Ruta Meilutyte

Both Phil and Simon Veale congratulated Gold Olympian Ruta on an excellent year. She is currently the world record holder in the 50- and 100-metre breaststroke. We all wished her more golds in the future as a reward for her dedication with Plymouth Leander swimming club. We will watch her progress with interest.

Annual awards ceremony took place in Ashburton on 16th Nov 2013.

120 year anninversary celebrations @ the Plymouth Life Centre on 13th Apr 2014

Thanks to all that took part in a memorable day starting with the Devon Interclub gala, won by Plymouth Leander Swimming Association.

Exeter Synchronised Swimming team then followed with a stunning display of control and elegance which was well received by the audience. Unfortunately due to economic constraints this was the last display by Exeter Syncro team - well done to everyone - you will be missed.

Devonport Royal Water Polo team mixed with some players from Newton Abbot, Exeter and Paignton to put on a display and a match (the white hats 'Spartans' beat the 'Barbarians' with blue hats). At the same time the Devon Masters and Seniors competed, demonstrating that that swimming doesn't finish at 17!

Display board with some new snippets.
