A small group of Nuneaton Air Cadets have recently managed to pull off an unbelievably outstanding performance, winning both Junior Team trophies at the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing Swimming Championships.
The cadets who were representing 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron found themselves competing against much larger teams from other units. But the Nuneaton youngsters, determined to do their best just kept winning medals. Cadet Gemma Porter took the Gold in the junior girls breaststroke and then another Gold in the individual medley. Cadet Joe Peffers gained the Gold in the junior boys breaststroke and individual medley then went on with his team mates Cadets Little, James Spreadborough and Stephen Spreadborough to win Gold in the junior boys relay.
With an impressive total of
together with the efforts of the other team members, 121 Squadron eventually took 1 st place in both the junior girls and junior boys championships.
Flt Lt. Ian Crewe Officer Commanding 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron who accompanied the team said, “I was delighted with our performance. We only had ten cadets in our team and to end up coming home with both junior team trophies is just unbelievable. Hopefully the achievements of our small team of junior cadets this year will serve to encourage more of our seniors to take part next year. Who knows, perhaps we could achieve even better results with a larger team.”
