Sessions 3 and 4 off club champs took place on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Both girls and boys swam the 100m breaststroke, 100m backstroke, 200m freestyle, 200m butterfly and 1500m freestyle; the boys swam the 200m IM and the girls swam the 400m free. Again, we had some remarkable racing and some incredible results.
Overall our swimmers achieved 156 personal best times over the two days. Wow! We also saw 30 club records achieved, including one all-time fastest girl’s swim. So super-huge congratulations go to the following new club record holders
100 breast – Lilla (8), Anouk (10), Jack (13), Lauren (18+)
100 back – Lewis P (8), Lilla (8), Thomas M (17), Justine (17), Lauren (18+)
200 free – Faith (13), Molly (16), Thomas M (17), Justine (17), Lauren (18+)
200 fly – Faith (13) – all time fastest swim; Holly (15), Mary O (16), Thomas M (17)
200 IM – Thomas M (17)
400 free – Anouk (10), Faith (13), Molly (16), Yvonne (17), Lauren (18+)
1500 free – Josh (13), Holly (15), Molly (16), Thomas M (17), Yvonne (17), Lauren (18+).
The final heat of the girls’ 200m freestyle was a near blanket finish, which was wonderful to watch; Jack and Nick duelled again at the 100m breaststroke; and also Lauren’s 1500m without hat or goggles (through accident rather than design) was really quite remarkable!
Big congratulations to the small group achieving county qualifying times in these longer events: Anouk, Jack, Nick, Faith, Thomas M, Justine, Kieran (200IM!) and Lauren.
