Cambridge Spring Open Report

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.

Mini Meet Report

Well done to all 14 swimmers who took part in last weekend’s Mini Meet at Parkside. Unfortunately one swimmer couldn’t be there due to illness but hopefully will join us next time.

 

For most of you it was your first competition so I hope you had fun and look forward to the next one.

Everyone achieved a PB or more which is brilliant and shows your all working hard so keep it up.

Here is the tally:

3 PBs – Alec, Anoushka, Evie, Olivia

2 PBs – Jenny, Cassidy, Anna, Katherine, Mya

1 PB – Freddie, Justin, Lucia, Leah, Ithan

 

Well done Mya and Lucia, both winning a medal each. Mya won Bronze in Breaststroke and Lucia won Bronze in Backstroke.

 

A big thank you to all the parents who officiated on the night and helped the children poolside. These meets wouldn’t be possible without your support.

 

The possible date for next round will be June, we will pass on the information when we receive it.

Club Champs 2018 Session 7 Report

Here is the report for the Final session of Club Champs. Well done to all the swimmers for their sprints and a brilliant effort from those who competed in the 400m IM.

As a club we achieved loads of PBs, 3 club records and a few new county qualifying times.

Thank you again to everyone involved, officials, helpers and judges. It’s a brilliant team effort and couldn’t  be done without you.

I would like to thank and congratulate Suzy on another well planned club champs, she is the brain behind it all, I don’t know how she copes with the stress (I have suspicions that a strong drink may help).

I will try and put together a report on all the figures over all the sessions by next week.

I have a few more medals to hand out so I will try and catch up with people at training.

Next up we have the Newmarket Open in December and then the County Championships for those who are qualified. (I will email all of those who I have found to have county times).

Well done all, and thanks again.
