Super Swimming!

7th June 2013


Last weekend, Adam Wilson (Year 6) competed in the North East Regional competition at Sheffield. As Adam is older now and at a higher level, he is not a heat declared winner but instead has to be in the top ten to swim in the finals. 
Adam qualified for the finals on all three swims and again improved on his times.  This was a massive achievement in itself.  He came 5th in the 100 metres  backstroke and 5th in the 100 metres freestyle. In   200 metres butterfly, he received a bronze medal, breaking his own club record in the heats by 4 seconds, then in the final again breaking his record by another 3 seconds.  Adam is only 9 seconds away from qualifying for the Nationals and has a whole year to reach his own dream...
This weekend, Adam  has five swims, 200 Individual medley, 400 Freestyle, 100 butterfly, 200 backstroke and finally the 200 freestyle.  Again, to reach the top ten will be a massive achievement.  Fingers crossed.
