By Rhys Roberts - July 11 2006
DSE Open Long Course 2006 Results One current and one former Dragons DSC swimmer swam in the DSE Open Long Course this weekend. Here are Katrina Mitchell and David Roberts' results.

Dragons DSC swimmer Katrina Mitchell and the club's Assistant Coach David Roberts swam in the DSE Open Long Course Championships held at Ponds Forge in Sheffield this weekend (7,8,9/07/06)

This event gave the top British swimmers a chance to post a qualifying time for the IPC World Swimming Championships which are being held in Durban, South Africa, at the end of this year. David Roberts managed to get a qualifying time in the 100m Freestyle, and many other top GB swimmers also posted qualifying times.

This gala was run in a heats and finals basis with the heats seeing the swimmers compete against others in their disability class, while the finals were operated on a Multi-Disability format, similar to the one used at the Commonwealth Games (see the Melbourne 2006 pages on this site for a full explanation).
