|2021 British Championship Qualifiers||The British Champs Qualifying Times have been published and we're thrilled to report that we have two qualifiers at the Club.
James P qualified in the 50m free and the 100m back
Ashley D qualified in the 50m free
This event takes place in mid April and, in an Olympic year, also serve as the Olympic trials, so it really is a huge achievement for our small Club to produce qualifiers in this event. It should definitely serve as inspiration for all our younger swimmers too.
Huge congratulations to the boys on their achievement.
In these uncertain times, who knows whether the event will actually take place, but for the boys and for the Club, we can always say that they're Olympic trials qualifiers!
Level X Racing,
Some great news to share with you all!
The final standings from Series 1 of Swim England’s Level X have been released and we have three, yes three, top 10 swimmers! This translates to an English National Final!
Well done to Max O for his 8th place finish in the 100IM. He’s definitely one to watch in the future!
Ashley D took 9th in the 50 Fly, building on from his National final in 2019 in the same event.
James P finished 6th in the 100IM, 8th in the 50Free and 2nd in the 50Back, earning a Silver Medal in the process!
Well done to the three boys on their outstanding achievements and for flying the flag for our Club nationwide. To achieve such amazing times and results at the end of such a turbulent year is credit to their work ethic and commitment to their training.
We can’t wait to bring round 2 of Level X later in the year and we’re sure more names will start creeping onto those National leaderboards.
Keep up the amazing work you’re all doing at land training and endurance wise and we’ll be ready to go again when we get the green light.
