Club member Maia Hall did the club proud when she competed in the ASA short course championships in Sheffield this month. At only 14 Maia was one of the youngest swimmers in the competition which saw some of the top British swimmers such as Olympians Chris Walker-Hebborn and Amy Wilmott competing. Indeed the eventual winner of two of Maia’s events was Loughborough swimmer Molly Renshaw who set a new British Record of 2.17.98 in the 200M final.
Maia had 3 days in Sheffield where she competed in all three Breaststroke events gaining a pb in each one of them. She then had a quick trip home before setting off back to Sheffield the next day to attend the English Phase 2 training camp with several of the other top young breaststrokers in the country. With 2 x 2 hour swimming sessions plus land training and lectures every day for the 3 day camp it has been a busy week for Maia and she has earned the short Christmas break before settling into preparations, with the rest of her team mates, for the County Championships in February.
