Callum has solid performance at his first National Championships, whilst Steph brings home a medal

Callum NationalsCallum Greenwood has debuted at the ASA National Youth Championships in strong fashion, posting a time very close to his personal best.  Callum had qualified for the 50m backstroke which is swum as an open event, rather than in age group categories.  Callum’s strong swim in a time of 28:65 saw him improve his ranking to 17th in the country for the 17 year olds.

To qualify alone is an amazing achievement.  For Callum to cope with the nerves of his first competitive swim at this level and to improve his rankings is worthy of much praise indeed – we’re proud of you Callum!!

And Clevedon had another medallist!  A bit like a number 10 bus – none for ages and then two come at once!  Steph Reynolds, who moves to the University of Bath team in September, swam to a bronze medal podium position in the 200IM.  This is Steph’s first medal at the Championships and was only hundredths of a second away from silver.  With more races to come this week, this was an incredible start and we wish Steph all the best for the rest of the week.Steph medal

Amelia is Clevedon’s first ASA National Champion

AmeliaAmelia Chappell made history today when, as part of the Taunton Deane Network relay team, she became National Champion along with Kayleigh Parker, Chloe Edrich and Emily Yap of Taunton Deane.  Amelia swam a storming 100m butterfly leg, where she pulled away from gold medal contenders Plymouth Leander to give Taunton a massive lead going into the final 100m, which Emily Yap maintained.

A full report will follow, but this was definitely the highlight of a week which saw Amelia compete individually in the heats of the 200IM, where she improved her time and her ranking, the 100m butterfly making the final where she recorded 1:04:78 and the 200m butterfly with a pb.  She has also been a important member of the Taunton Deane Network relay – swimming in the heats and final of the 4 x 100m freestyle relay,  the 4 x 200m freestyle relay and culminating in the gold medal winning swim in the 4 x 100m medley relay, in the butterfly leg in a fantastic time of 1:02:72 – that’s 2 seconds faster than her pb that she set earlier in the week in the individual 100m fly!!Medallists

Our thanks go to Graham Davidson and the Taunton Deane Network for giving our swimmers this opportunity which might not otherwise have been possible.

That concludes the Age Groups and we now move onto the Youth Championships with Callum Greenwood making his debut at this level and Steph Reynolds.  So keep watching the tweets from Tuesday onwards!
