Well done to everyone this weekend at Counties.
There were some brilliant performances. Pretty much everyone PB’d in something and there were some huge break through swims, and lots of medals and finals. We are really proud of all of you.
Special mentions go to the 16 year old boys for dominating the age group, Megan for being the best team player (she was very good at the counselling aspect of coaching!), Emily for the bravest swim, Oscar & Max for attempting to swim whilst feeling super unwell, Tom for getting the most gold πŸ₯‡ medals, and an extra special mention to the 400 IM brigade - all of whom I had to almost drag out of the pool at the end (amazing efforts).
You all absolutely smashed it and did the Club proud. The gold hats definitely made us swim super fast and your attitudes on poolside were first class πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™
The BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE DUCKS were awarded to Emily - bravest 400 free we have witnessed Isabelle - 400 free coming together for a 5 sec PB Mollie - 10 sec PB 400 free and Regional Time Mostafa - 200 Breast performance & medal Sam - 9 sec PB and great race plan delivery for 200 Breast Sophia - epic 100 back - 6 sec pb and πŸ₯‰medal Jessica - epic 100 back PB and πŸ₯ˆ medal Imogen - 10 sec PB 400 IM πŸŽ‰ Hannah B - 1.12 100 back - been waiting for that swim for a while πŸ’™πŸ’›
