The Stockport Metro SC Long Course Meet on Saturday 13th April saw Shrewsbury swimmer Ellie Sykes achieve her first ever National Qualifying time!

Ellie has been a consistent feature at Midland Champs having qualified in each of the last 3 seasons, with 5 MDQT’s this season.  She swam a big personal best last October, where she was a mere 0.5 seconds off the 100m Breast mark to qualify for the season ending Nationals.  On the back of several hours of training week in, week out and a successful training camp in Majorca, she travelled to Stockport and beat her PB by nearly 2 secs, meaning she was well under the required mark. Massive congratulations from the whole club and let the road to the Nationals begin!
