We have just completed the South West Regional Championships, held over a few weekends in April/May at the 50m pools in our region, Hengrove, Bristol, Life Centre, Plymouth and Millfield School, Somerset. The South West is one of the strongest regions in the UK for swimming, with our swimmers facing swimmers from very strong clubs who can boast better pool facilities and more favourable training times than we can, which highlights how well our swimmers have done to compete against them and gain the success they have.
We had 46 swimmers achieve the necessary qualifying times, across 228 swims which resulted in these superb results:
1 x Gold, 8 x Silver and 9 Bronze medals. This was on top of numerous finalists and a large number of personal best swims. Here is our Gold Medalist Josephine Klein, who achieved her 1st place finish in the 14 year old Female 50m Freestyle final.
Well done to all our swimmers!
