CITY OF LEICESTER AGE GROUP OPEN MEET, BRAUNSTONE, APRIL 2016

More than 20 of our swimmers travelled east to compete in the fast pool for the Leicester Age Group meet, which always promises the potential for PB’s, and that’s certainly what was delivered amongst our swimmers. They demonstrated some encouraging results and improvements from County Champs merely 6 weeks earlier, both in terms of skills and times, with many swimmers recording new bests in the majority of their events.

Our team of swimmers, including Francine Gilmore competing in her first open meet for the club, gained a PB rate above 50% across the 3 day meet. Furthermore, medals came from Callum Piggott, Ben Rowley, Henry Sewell, Melissa Pugh, Tom Rowley and Claire Beddow, while Kate Grindley won the team’s 2 Gold medals in the 100 and 200 Breastroke events.

Well done to all on another strong set of performances, especially so soon after Counties!!
