what an awesome result on Saturday. Promotion in successive years, finishing second this season to City of Stoke, having been ranked fourth going into the final. Brilliant effort from the team, focused, determined and still swimming fast after Club Champs.

What a great weekend of swimming in this season’s Club Championships. The third oldest championship record broken by Erin H by 1/100th of a second (Clare Crewdson’s 1983 100m Butterfly) amongst 20 other new records set. Asking around after the event, there was nobody to recall 21 records going in a single Championships. Nearly every swimmer set at least 1 PB during the event, near enough 70% of swims being new best times.
