Report City of Bristol open meet 27th and 28th October, 2018

A small team, 12 swimmers, competed in the Early Bird City of Bristol open on 27th and 28th October, 2018 at Hengrove pool in Bristol. Up against stiff opposition, the swimmers performed utterly brilliantly. Medals were won by Shania, Jessie, Steph, Sophie and Emily. Shania set a new Club record of 29.65 in the female 12 yrs 50m Freestyle. Nearly all, way in excess of 90%, were PBs and some large improvements. Sophie took over 12 secs off her previous best for 200m Breaststroke from 3.15.29 down to 3.03.12! I could list all the achievements, but I was so proud of the way they attacked their races. Alice, who had been unwell all week and getting worse by the minute, didnt use that as an excuse, and they executed most of what they have been doing in training and they were a credit to themselves. Plenty of RQTs and RCTs as well County times.

Results are available on the City of Bristol website:

Well done!
