Swimming for the first time at British Swimming’s British Championships at the London Aquatics Centre is a daunting experience for anyone, but Amelia Chappell took it all in her stride and produced an outstanding swim in the 100m Butterfly to make the 15/16yr old final!! Incredible achievement just to get there, and then to make a final – INCREDIBLE! A goosebump moment as in the evening session the finalists were announced individually onto poolside, including – “In lane 1 Amelia Chappell representing Clevedon”.
And to cap it all off, in the same session a World Record was broken in the Men’s 100m Breaststroke by Adam Peaty – see the video of ADAM PEATY.
Read all about Amelia’s two swims in our Press Release. Our congratulations to Amelia and our thanks to the Taunton Network and Graham Davidson for the additional training and support. Amelia is pictured here with fellow Network swimmer, Emily Yap.
The Cotswold team have secured yet another win in the Cotswold League ensuring they remain near the top of the league table and in a strong position going into the last round on the 2nd May, before the Final on the 16th. This time it was a resounding win, with 50 points separating Clevedon and 2nd place Bridgwater. Such was the team spirit that Team Manager Stuart Phipps awarded Star Swimmer to the whole team!
Final points on the night were Clevedon 172, Bridgwater 122, Norton Radstock 117 and Minehead 97. That makes it 3 wins out of 3 – AMAZING!
Full results and report to follow.
Due to Improvers’ time trials, Senior and Performance squad sessions this Sunday (19th) will start half an hour later at 6.30pm. Please pass the word round! Thanks
