Sunday 1st May 2022 saw an early start for Team Ilkeston as Midland Potential and Development squads headed to Eckington Swimming Club to compete in their annual meet.
For many of our swimmers this was the first time they have ever raced in a competition!
Representing Ilkeston on the day, Chloe Foreman, Darcie Barker, Elena Marson, Emily Stevens, Elva Mulcahy, Erin Langsdale, Evie ‘o’ Neill, Grace Cruz, Poppy Brown and Robyn Robertson. Adam Hill, Ethan Foord, Finley McKeown, Finn Langsdale, Kieran Law, Ronnie Archer, Rory McKeown and William Radford.
Swimmers did their best and pulled off some fantastic swims and many gained huge personal bests. Well done to each and every one of you!
Top 10 finishes for Chloe, Darcie, Elva, Erin, Evie, Grace, Poppy, Ronnie and Rory.
Awards were given to our swimmers who achieved a top six finish so a special well done to Chloe, Darcie, Evie, Grace, Ronnie and Rory who all went home with medals
And 1 extra special well done to Chloe who picked up a bronze medal in 100m breaststroke.
A big thank you to Anna, Caitlyn, Maisie and Victoria for their volunteering services on the day. As always we couldn’t do it without our volunteers.
Thank you to the swimmers for representing the club in style
And finally a thanks to all the parents for supporting the children whilst battling the very high temperatures on the balcony.
Hope you all enjoyed it as we are already looking forward to the next!
