National Arena League - The Final Round

Mon 11/Dec/2017

On Saturday night the team boarded the coach to Horsham. With little traffic, our swimmers arrived early and keen to get in the pool. As this was the final round of the league the atmosphere was buzzing with excitement and nervous energy. With 50 events on the programme and 10 swum we were in 4th place after the first set of relays. The swimmers watching, cheering and working out the points race by race telling each other which teams they had to beat. Race by race the points began to build. The last set of relays everyone knew what needed to be done. Age by age group we raced with the volume at the pool increasing with each take over. By the last two races, the ladies and mens open 6x50 freestyle, the excitement was intense and the volume incredible. Both of the races were tight, with positions changing numerous times through out. Our swimmers in both events came through and managed to finish in first place. It was a great evening with great team spirit and excellent individual swims from our younger swimmers to our masters which resulted in us finishing the evening in 2nd place! Final results 1st - Croydon - 214 points 2nd - Orpington Ojays - 201 points 3rd - Ashford & East Grinstead - 179 points 5th - Shepway - 168 points 6th - Dover - 108 points Thanks to all the helpers, coach Damien, parents and swimmers.

Billy makes history at INAS World Champs

Mon 11/Dec/2017

Massive congratulations to Billy Birchmore who earlier in the month had an outstanding INAS World Championships. Billy started the meet on top form by setting a new World Record during the heats of the 50m Freestyle DS Class in 30.56 seconds. He also made history by being the first ever Great Britain Gold medallist at an INAS Sport Championships, Down syndrome class. He was crowned World Champion in the 200m backstroke in 3:04.21. He took the same title for the 200m, 400m and 1500m Freestyle as well! For the 50 Freestyle and Backstroke Billy won Silver and in the 100m Freestyle he won Bronze. An amazing set of the results Billy! Simply outstanding.
