Well done to all 21 swimmers who took part in the cambridge Open, we had such a great weekend of results.
Two swimmers in particular went to the Open with one goal in mind, to get a Regional qualifying time. I am extremely pleased to say that both Phoebe and Matteo achieved this goal and qualified for 50m Backstroke, they both swam so well and really pushed for it, a big congratulations to you both.
Now on to the PB’s. Out of 64 races they came away with 44 PBs, with over half of them being 2’s faster or more. Here are the numbers:
1 PB for – Grace, Anna N, Matteo, Lewis P, Ithan and David
2 PB’s for – Anna I-k, Mya, Zubair, Rachel, Justin, Matthew, Freddie B and Alex
3 PBs for – Mauricio and Lilla
4 PBs for – Freya
5 PBs for – Phoebe
7 PBs – Patryk, topping the leader board
There were some medals won which were particularly hard to win due to the meet being aimed for regional qualifiers so a lot of fast swimmers had entered.
Lilla achieved Bronze in 100m Breaststroke
Matteo achieved Bronze in 50m Backstroke
Yvonne Achieved Bronze in 200m Medley
Phoebe achieved Gold in 50m Backstroke
Just when I thought the weekend couldn’t of gone any better I found out we had 10 new club records too….
Yvonne – 50m Fly, 100m Free, 200 Medley, 100m Backstroke
Phoebe – 100m and 50m Backstroke
Matteo – 50m Backstroke
Lilla – 100m and 50m Breaststroke
Freddie B – 50m Breaststroke
Great work from everyone, in particular Patryk who had a full house of PB’s with all brilliant swims, Phoebe and Matteo for their Regional times and also to Yvonne one of our Uni swimmers who came back to compete.
Thank you Paula, Rachel and Sara for helping with the swimmers and to Youri for helping coach Friday.
