Stockport Swimmers Bring Home The Medals


All eyes may have been on the Olympic stage in Rio recently but Stockport may well provide some of the games’ future pool stars if Stockport Metro’s recent success is anything to go by.
The swimmers, known as the ‘Wolfpack’ enjoyed string of summer successes with 38 medals from the British Summer Champs and English Home Nations.
The club won 10 gold medals at the British Summer Champs at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge.
Katie Matts (17), won golds in the 100m and 200m breaststroke and the 200m individual medley, and Holly Hibbott (16), who swam one of her best-ever times to secure the 400m freestyle title, as well as winning golds in the 200m butterfly and 800m freestyle.
