A POYNTON swimmer has collected another haul of medals.
Jake Clappison, 15, recently won the Skins competition at Stockport Metro Club Championships, a series of seven sprint races where the slowest competitor is knocked out in each race.
Not only did Jake win the overall competition in his age group but also won each individual race too.
This latest haul accompanies the many medals he has won over the years at various events, such as the Manchester and District Competitions and the English Schools Gala where in the seven events he raced he achieved seven top three places, including three firsts.
In events such as the National Arena League Finals in Cardiff Jake has swum alongside Olympians such as Adam Peaty, who last week broke the 100m Breast Stroke World Record. In this same event Jake was part of the Stockport Metro team that included Commonwealth medallist Lauren Quigley and in this national competition his Stockport Metro team achieved 2nd place in 2014 and 4th place in 2015.
The teenager, from High Lane, started swimming aged two.
Jake, a pupil at Poynton High, trains eight times a week.
His favourite events are the 50m freestyle, 100m freestyle and 200 individual medley.
Proud headteacher David Waugh said: “Jake has shown an enormous amount of focus and dedication to achieve his success.”
