Another busy weekend, but this time just for a small number of swimmers racing at two different locations; Sheffield and Coventry – both Long Course Competitions.
At Ponds Forge it was the City of Sheffield Snow Frills Open Meet. A small group of seven age group swimmers spent the weekend racing a number of events, but with the main focus being on 100m & 200m distances with the DASA sprints taking place this weekend.
A very competitive open meet saw these younger less experienced swimmers thrive under pressure executing good techniques and skills. The swimmers conducted themselves professionally throughout the weekend and the team spirit was strong. Well done to the following swimmers; Amber Wilkins, Dominic Wynn, Eja Coe, Emma Wilkins, Erin Pickard, Ethan Hulme and Tegan Hulme.
A special mention for Dominic who has competed in his first Long Course Open Meet and in the process attained two pbs showing a clear improvement in skill level and his previous bests.
A total of 45 out of 45 pbs, and 1 silver medal for Eja Coe in the 50m Butterfly.
Overall, a very good weekend of quality racing!
Travelling to Coventry where DX were also competing at the City of Coventry Open. Kyle, DX Talent Coach, tells us more; four DX/Ilka swimmers were racing at the meet; Lewis Wright, Leah Burgin-Rawson, Charlie Palmer and Lewis Brown. All four swimmers attaining process bests as they played a role in helping Team DX secure the Top Club award at the Open! Well done swimmers!
The next and final two competitions of the year are the DASA sprints & R3 Arena League!
