A mini Olympics was held at Portishead Open Air Pool on Thursday.
Five primary schools from the town competed head-to-head in the fun sporting occasion.
The swimming gala was started in 2012 to coincide with the London Olympics and has now become an annual event.
More than 270 pupils from High Down, St Joseph’s, St Peter’s, Trinity and Portishead primary schools competed across 104 races.
The fastest four swimmers from each heat progressed to the individual finals, while the gala was rounded off by a relay race.
