Club takes on the best
HILLINGDON Swimming Club had great success as nine of their members travelled to Sheffield to compete in the 2015 British Summer Championships.
Competing against the nation’s top swimmers, eight of the Hillingdon team made it through to the finals, although none of the youngsters finished with a medal.
Head coach John Adye said: “The whole team enjoyed a successful week of racing, achieving plenty of personal best performances, showing that Hillingdon can compete with the biggest clubs in the country.”
Alfie Collins missed out on a medal place in the 400 Individual Medley by just three tenths of a second, smashing his own personal best time by a mammoth eight seconds.
The girls 4x200 team finished sixth racing against teams that included GB international swimmers, while 14-year-old Jemima Hall achieved PBs in all of her events, finishing in fourth, sixth and seventh place.
In the 3km Open Water race, Loulou Voss finished a narrow fourth behind two GB swimmers.
