Billy Martin representing Swim England South East Regional at International Competition
Billy Martin of Maxwell Swim Club was recently selected by Swim England South East to compete in the Flanders cup, Belgium. He took part in several events across 2 days the first being 400m Freestyle. Billy was just off his personal best and finished 14th overall, which was a great start to his long course season and 2018. Later that day, Billy took part in the 800m Freestyle where he was also just off his entry time to finish 8th overall. All the way through the race each of his 100’s was very evenly split and didn’t drop off much throughout the 800m’s.
The next day Billy started off with a sprint the 100m Freestyle where once again was just off personal best but with very pleasing swim with all the hard racing the day before. Billy then raced his main event of the weekend, the 1500m Freestyle where he also finished in 8th place with once again some good pacing and a close finish beating 9th place by just 0.10seconds!
Now Billy is getting ready for a good long course season ahead working towards Regionals and qualifying for Nationals.
