Just over half a second separated the top four in the final of the Mens 100m Backstroke for 17yrs+ at the South West Regional Championships today. George touched agonisingly in 4th place, but can take confidence from the fact that he pb’d, not just in the heat but also in the final and has knocked over a second of his personal best since January this year as well as the fact that he has only just turned 17 and was gaining on the leaders in the last 25 metres.
This was the last race of the Championships for George which has proved to be very successful for both himself and Finlay Smith. First up on Saturday was Fin in the 100m Free. No final, but a confidence boosting performance slicing almost a second off the time he set in March. 50m Backstroke next, with both making an appearance in Finals and George smashing through the 28 second barrier for the first time to hit 27:58. In the afternoon, George just missed out on the final of the 200IM, but still recorded a personal best, whilst a great swim saw Fin go through to the 50m Butterfly final for 16yrs. This proved to be a great battle with 2nd to 3rd all recording 27:!! and Fin emerging from the scramble with a well-deserved bronze medal.
With Sunday morning off for Fin, George had to endure the 400 IM, but he did it in style with a 10 second pb placing him 7th. The afternoon saw Fin produce another person best performance in the 100m Butterfly, just missing a finals place, but there were to be finals for both boys later in the programme with Fin in the splash and dash 50m Freestyle and George in the 200m Backstroke where yet another personal best time, dipping under 2:08, gave George a podium place with a silver medal.
Well done to both on a fantastic Championships! See the full results on our RESULTS page.
A team of swimmers from St John the Evangelist Primary School in Clevedon, comprising of Clevedon club members Caitlin Mark, Chloe Price and Sam Streeter, together with Issy Hillary-Gosling, are to go to Ponds Forge in Sheffield in June to compete in the ESSA Championships. The team were at Millfield last week at the South West heats and their strong combination took them to 3rd in the mixed freestyle relay which earned them a trip to Sheffield for the Championships. The medley relay team of Caitlin, Chloe, Sam and Honey Kemp, just missed out with their 4th place. Congratulations to St Johns – a great experience awaits you!
Another local school Highdown Junior from Portishead will also be at the Final, comprising of 3 swimmers from Backwell and one non-club swimmer so Clevedon & Portishead will both be represented.
Harriet Dickinson finished her Glasgow campaign with another finals appearance in the 200 IM. A very strong race, faster on each length than she has done previously, she touched first in her final in a time 3 seconds faster than her personal best. Congratulations to Harriet on a fantastic competition which saw her reach 5 finals. You did us proud Harriet! And thanks to Juliet Deviell for making the trip up with Harriet. An experience we are sure they will both remember for a long time to come.
