The full results for the February Ealing Open Meet have been uploaded into our TU database and a full report for each swimmer can be found by following the link below:
Ramtin, Joanna, Claudia, and I were pleased with the overall level of performances by the Brompton swimmers throughout the weekend which included dozens of medals and over 130 life time bests (about 60% of all swims). Many of the swimmers who were coming off half-term holidays and a busy term of exams may not have hit as many good swims as they would have liked but this certainly helps highlight the need for consistent training throughout the year especially leading into competitions. Feedback from the coaches to the swimmers also highlighted a number technical and tactical areas that the swimmers need to improve, many of which are also addressed simply by showing up to the pool more often and putting in the hours required to develop good habits.
A big thank you to the coaches for their work with the swimmers during the meet and to the parents for your support. A special mention of thanks as well to Bob Bloomfield for volunteering to officiate despite not having a swimmers participating in the meet.
