Arron Heaves Up Club Record and Distance Champs
Arron Heaves up Club Record becoming a Double Winner at Distance Champs.
 
The culminating competitive event of 2019 took to Rossmore Leisure Centre where the Poole Swimming Club Distance Club Championships were held, seeing members swim the 800m Free on Saturday and 1500m Free on Sunday.
 
Pushing himself to the limit and rewarding his efforts down the poolside drain as soon as he touched the wall, the mighty Arron H displayed a leading swim writing his name into the Poole Swimming Club Age Group Records for 1500m, breaking the 19 minute mark and gaining a huge PB and the fastest time out of anyone on the evening.  The win secured him both the 800m and 1500m, having won the shorter event the evening before, becoming the only male (and one of two) swimmers to earn double wins.
 
Coach Jan commented “Seeing the determination put into both events, and seeing the pain he was prepared to push through was inspiring”
 
Still Smiling!
 
 
The other double winner amassing a huge personal best in the 1500m by a minute after leading her heat from start to finish was Nuala O’K.  Following her race she commented “It’s those 12 x 200m Fly’s that Chris keeps making me do on Monday mornings that made me strong and confident”
 
In the youngest age group of the female competition training partners, Bertie B and Beatrice R shared the honors, with Bertie taking the 800m and Beatrice the 1500m. Beatrice earned bronze in the 800m and impressively braved competing in both her first 800m and 1500m.
 
In the double age group above another set of training, buddies shared the honors with Jess H earning the win in the 800m and Natalia B the 1500m. In the next age group, Betsy V took the 800m and Lilliana SJ the 1500m.
Aimee Q was the fastest female in the 800m to take the win, whilst Lucy S was the fastest female in the 1500m to seal the wins in the penultimate age group, with Nuala taking the double in the oldest age group.
 
In the youngest age group of the male events Mason E, in his first-ever 800m took the win and Chris B took the win in the 1500m. There weren’t any boys taking part above Arron’s age in the 1500m, but wins in the 800m were earned by Max L, Ben D and Jacob P in their respective age groups.  
 
A huge well done to all competitors. 
 
And a big thank you to the Poole Swimming Club events team led by Annabel and Sean, to Joe for announcing and to all the officials and helpers that gave up time on an important weekend before Christmas.
