European Masters Champs... done.

Sun 29/May/2016

What a few days it was for our swimmers who competed in the European Masters Championships at the 2012 Olympic Pool. We had 50’s, 100’s and a 400 in Freestyle, Butterfly and Backstroke. We had PB’s, SB’s and CB’s from our team, and for a few days we felt and acted like Team GB. We had union towels and celebrations in the pool like an Olympic Gold had been won, no matter the time or position. We had guns out, air punching, bolts and dabs on poolside. We had chats with the Germans in the call room and we had hat swaps with the French post race. We had queues so long but the wait so worthwhile. Lastly, we all had the best fun! So much fun that most of the swimmers have now entered the Masters Kents. Photos are in the gallery, videos will be sorted out later.

Age Group Regionals

Sat 28/May/2016

During the first and third weekends of May, seven of our swimmers had qualified in thirty six events were at the long course regionals. Top Squad swimmers Callum Baronti, Ellie Harding, Jess Herbert, Rachael Langdon, Michael Phillips, Eddie Sellar and Justin Strover swam many great races achieving many PBs, some by two seconds. In the 100 freestyle Eddie and Justin both achieved 2 seconds PB with Eddie finishing 8th in age group and Justin 7th. After her 100 butterfly Jess finished 8th in the 400m freestyle producing another PB. In the 50 freestyle were Jess, Eddie, Justin, Michael and Callum. Jess raced again in the 50 backstroke and was joined by Rachel and Ellie, with Ellie producing a PB. Callum finished the day off with the 200m butterfly finishing 10th. The next day saw Jess do the 100 free and Callum the 100 fly, followed by Ellie producing a two second PB in the 200 backstroke. In the last event of the third session Eddie, Justin and Michael swam the 400 freestyle. Eddie finished 8th in age group and Justin finished with a five second PB! Next up Callum and Justin raced in the 50 backstroke and Jess the 200m butterfly. Two weeks later the swimmers were back at Crystal Palace. Ellie produced a three second PB in the 100 backstroke with Jess finishing 9th in her age group. Callum followed with the 100m breaststroke and then Jess was back in for the 400m IM improving three out of four splits and finishing 6th. Callum was back with the 50m breaststroke and a PB and then Jess again with the 50m fly. Michael, Eddie and Justin were in the 200 freestyle with Justin and Eddie producing PBs, Justin a four second one finishing him 6th in the final. Jess finished the long day of racing off with a 200 IM. The morning session of the last day was for Eddie alone who swam the 100 backstroke producing yet another PB and the afternoon session was for Callum and Jess. Callum raced the 50 fly and Jess swam a two second PB in the 200 freestyle putting her 9th in age group. Many good races have been seen and great PBs so shortly after a successful Kent Championship. Well done to all our swimmers who participated in this high standard event making coaches and parents happy and proud. A thank you to parents and officials who attended and helped to make these competitions a great success.
