The competition was a great success with very strong sprints and finishes. Each student swam the four styles: Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly for 20 or 50 meters.
At the end of the races, each group and swimming style was awarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals. The best swimmer from each age group received the Award Trophy for the Swimming Gala 2016.
