Stockport Metro Swim to New Heights with Midshire Support
Swimmers from the Stockport Metro Swim team have completed two high altitude training camps at Pretoria University in South Africa and Font Romeu in France with support from local office technology provider Midshire®.
In preparation for the British Championships today, 8 team members attended the two three-week camps over the months of January and March, which resulted in two swimmers qualifying for World and World Junior Championships.
Initially planning to send 6 swimmers, the cost of high altitude training was around £1800 per person, and as a result of the ongoing partnership with Midshire, the team were able to increase this to 8.
The technology company donated a Lexmark XC2132 multifunction full-colour printer to the team on a managed print service, which includes proactive servicing, parts, toner, and consumables at a fraction of their previous costs.
Stockport Metro also receive ongoing print support from Midshire, who provide them with edge-to-edge, full colour swim meet programmes throughout the swim season.
Due to the ongoing partnership, the Stockport based team were able to save an additional £500 per swimmer, which enabled them to fund the team in reaching their potential at high altitude training.
Stockport Metro’s Performance Director Sean Kelly said: “Midshire’s role has been integral in allowing us to send our team to this once in a lifetime training. We believe it is vital in giving our swimmers that extra edge needed to perform at their absolute best in the upcoming major competitions this month.
He continues: “The team have been training alongside Spanish Olympic champion Mireia Belmonte, which is a truly amazing experience for them.”
The qualifying swimmers will utilise their training and compete at the British Championships, European Championships, and World Championships this weekend.
