Club takes on the best

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
