The first weekend in October witnessed swimmers from Team GAW stretched across two nations. A team of 24 swimmers from different squads took on some of the best age group swimmers Scotland has to offer, while Team GAW’s rising national star Ryan Zhao, in the County Team Champs, pitted his wits against the best swimmers in the UK.
