Seventh Heaven for Ollie!

Oliver Davis-Tootill had an excpetional weekend at Ponds Forge representing the club at our own gala. He made the most of his final opportunity before his 15th birthday to smash a series of of junior short course records. He broke seven in total and here is the list:

50m Butterfly – 26.70

100m Individual Medley – 1:02.39

50m Backstroke – 27.49

100m Freestyle – 54.60

200 Backstroke – 2:12.24

100m Backstroke – 58.57

50m Freestyle – 24.54

Some of these records had previously stood for over 10 or 20 years and in some cases they have been bettered by over 3 seconds, not just small fractions. Well done to Ollie on this great achievement.

Open Water Success

Both Jack Finnie and Oscar Gavelle took part in the NW/NE Open Water Championships in Sale, Greater Manchester. Jack swam the 5k and Oscar the 3k both with great swims achieving medals in their respective age groups in the process. Jack’s time for the 5k was 1:09:42 and Oscar’s for the 3k was 45:44 allowing us to add two new rows to the Club Records list.

Let’s also recognise our A2 Coach Joe Gavelle who was invited to support the Regional coaching team for these open water events.

Well done to everyone!
