Never give up! George Leaman proved that if you keep on believing and keep on trying you can achieve your goals. At Hengrove this weekend at the Aquae Sulis Open Meet, George secured his place in Sheffield in December by swimming a personal best time in the 200m backstroke. Despite the disappointment on Saturday of swimming his fastest 50m backstroke but not quite meeting the National time, George put it behind him today and was celebrating!
Finlay Smith also had success in adding qualification in the 50m backstroke to his 50m Fly and Callum Greenwood also qualified in a further event – the 100m backstroke. So the three boys have joined Amelia Chappell in being the four swimmers from Clevedon having qualified for the ASA National Winter Meet. Fantastic! Well done all!
Good news! Our Arena teams performance in the 2nd round has ensure that the club remains right in the middle of the league table going into the final round on the 12th December. This means that Clevedon will be drawn in the middle final gala, guaranteeing their Division 1 status. This is so well deserved by the swimmers who have competed so far and put so much into this great team performance.
We now just wait to see where we will be in the final round. We will go into this gala lying 4th out of the 8 teams competing and with a great opportunity to go out with a win in the final round – we have already beaten 4 of the teams in previous rounds!
