Sheffield Snow Frills Long Course

Ilkeston swimmers shone at Sheffield Snow Frills long Course meet held at Ponds Forge International Swimming Pool at the weekend. With swimmers age 9 years and upwards they did not disappoint

There were a lot of outstanding performances and some really fast times from the swimmers in a tough meet with age group combinations in place in all categories.

18 swimmers represented Team Ilkeston and worked really hard on their skills, main focus being speed and underwater work out of the starts and turns. With hard work in training the back-end speed of the swimmers was a pleasure to watch

3 Gold, 3 Silver and 6 Bronze medals were won with 36 top 6 places. 157 races raced. 132 personal best times gained. PB rate 83.44%

Medal winners:

Fred Buckingham; Gold in 200 and 100 breast, Bronze 200IM

James Wright; Gold 50 Back, Bronze 200 back

Erin Pickard; Bronze 50 Free

Erica Beharall; Bronze 50 Free

Finley O Neill Silver 50 Free

McKinley Cotton Silver in 50 and 100 Free, Bronze in 50 Back

Elliot Bestwick Bronze 200 Back
