Both Amelia Chappell and Ben Penhale came home with a silver medal each today at the first day of the ASA SW Regional Age Group Championships. What a result! Well done guys. Amelia produced personal best times in both the heat and the final of the 100m butterfly to pick up hers and give her confidence going forward into the National Championships later in the year. Ben also produced two personal best times in the heat and the final (improving by 2 seconds on his heat time) to touch for his silver. Not bad at his first Regional Championships and in the 10/11 age group! Fantastic.
They were joined by another first-timer in her first Regional Championships by Tabitha Pollard who also swam the 200 IM. Great achievement to qualify Tabs – well done!
