They’re off to the Nationals Again!
Three of the Elite Squad swimmers are once again competing in the Summer National Competitions. Henry Hickson (50M Bk/s) and Lottie Thompson (200M Bk/s) both compete in the British Summer Championships at Ponds Forge, Sheffield on 24th and 27th July respectively . The top 24 swimmers in each age group are invited to compete in these Championships so the swimmers have done exceptionally well to have been selected.
The following week sees the same two swimmers joined by team-mate Hannah Trowsdale swimming in the Swim England National Summer Meet at the same venue. Hannah will compete in both the 100 & 200M Butterfly while Henry swims 100 & 200 Backstroke and Lottie is in the 100M Backstroke. This is the last gala of the season before the swimmers enjoy a hard earned rest and we wish them every success in Sheffield.
