What an incredible performance by our swimmers at County Championships 2020, far exceeding expectations and leaving the coaches worried about next year's targets!
Our 47 swimmers reached 79 finals and won 33 medals - this is an increase of more than 50% on 2019. The medal count included three relay bronzes, with the 12/U boys coming third in both their free and medley relays.
In the Open Women's 4 x 50 free we saw a 13yo, a 14yo and one of our Masters in the team that were touched out of the medals by just 0.4 seconds. Amazing performance!
There were Regional Qualifying Times achieved and long standing Club Records taken down.
One of our 14yo boys won the 50 Fly, against all expectations, and, being faster than the all other Juniors (15/u) he is the Junior County Champion for that event.
We had 10 individual medallists, plus another 4 as part of relay teams:
GOLD: Curtis, David, Emily B, James
SILVER: Cole, David, Emily B, Emily S, James
BRONZE: Charlotte M, Cole, Curtis, Daniel, David, Emily B, Emily S, Gaelen, Jacob J, James, Lily, Sam, Sina, Tasmin
Thank you to all the Coaches and the Volunteers that gave up their time over both weekends, and to the amazing support in the Gallery. It was fantastic to see Kettering supporters getting behind every one of our swimmers.
