Icebergs Impress At Rising Stars

City of Manchester Icebergs fielded a team of 7 swimmers at their first Rising Stars under the new name and with the new coaching team of Simon Gustafson and Helen Hennessey.

Joseph Davenport, Amber Allen and Erin Hennessey attended the meet for the first time for Icebergs and registered some great personal best times.

Caiden Sullivan Jones participated in all 5 races and took an average of 7 seconds off each of his times. Great job Caiden!!

Aimee Allen swam the 50m fly race for the first time, got a whopping 10 second PB on the 100m Individual Medley and took 9 seconds off her 50m freestyle time to finish 4th.

Efeomo Itua picked up 3 BRONZE medals and a SILVER in the 8-year-old category and Lilly Coughlan swam an incredible 12 second in the 50m freestyle and won GOLD in the 50m backstroke.


Well done to the whole team who are already working towards the next Rising Stars gala to be held on Saturday 24th September.
