Amersham students make a splash at iconic London 2012 venue


School students from Amersham recorded an impressive performance at an iconic London 2012 venue during a national swimming competition recently.

Children from Dr. Challoner’s High School were competing in the 58th ESSA Relay Championship National Final at the London Aquatic Centre, Stratford, on November 21.

Senior pupils secured a top 15 finish in both the freestyle and the medley with the juniors registering a top 20 finish in both disciplines.

Mrs Yeomans from Dr. Challoner’s High School, said: “We are so proud of the girls performance in the national finals.

“They were competing against some of the best swimmers in the country and did exceptionally well to not only qualify, but to move up the leader board.”

The senior team was represented by Emily Blissett, Charlotte Ibbeson, Charlotte Musa and Mia Poplawska while the junior team featured Amelie Brown, Roisin Hynes, Olivia Lee and Izzy Sellers.

They train about around five times a week at Amersham Swimming Club, Chalfont Otters and Chesham Swimming Club.
