Records broken at National Championships

The last two weeks have seen our swimmers compete at National Championships both in open water and in the pool. A series of club records have been smashed in the process:

Oscar Gavelle now holds both the open and under 15 records for the 3k open water with a time of 36 min and 57 seconds beating the time previously held by Jack Finnie.

However, Jack broke his own record for the 5k open water with a time of 56 minutes and 17 seconds.

In the pool, Mollie Fisher again broke her own record for the 400m freestyle long course with a time of 4:28.59 leaving her with 12 current records as she competes for the final time for Metro.

Maddie Johnson set some great times to add to the 50m fly record she gained a few weeks ago by breaking Debbie Cocking’s 100m fly time twice with 1:03.19 in the heats and 1:02.77 in the final. She then went on to beat Claire Liggins’ 1999 400m IM record with a time of 5:05.00.

Finally, in the under 15s age group, Bow Gomersall achieved a time of 55.59s in the long course 100m freestyle beating Ollie Davis-Tootill’s time only very recently set at this years NERs.

Well down to all our swimmers breaking records and being great ambassadors for Metro.
