The weekend brought tough competition and amazing success. Harry, Ciara, Gemma and Lauren competed at Basildon and Phoenix level 1 long course meet. It was an extra chance for us to gain times in a long course pool. The level of competition was very high as there were many Regional and National swimmers there aiming for National Times. They all competed in the 14 and over category with a chance of finals for the 50’s.
Firstly we had Harry in the final heat of the boys 50 breaststroke, with an amazing time just off his PB, 32.92. He placed 9th just missing out on finals.
Next was Gemma in the 50 backstroke with a great time of 32.75. She placed 10th overall, and placed well in her heat.
Lauren placed 5th with a time of 1.16 in the 100 breaststroke.
Next session brought the 50 freestyle for Harry and the 50 fly for Ciara. Harry placed 13th with a time of 26.43. Ciara made finals and placed 7th with a time of 30.56!
