It was a great weekend for Amersham at the South East Region Winter championships in Portsmouth.
ASC won 4 medals! Luke Hollingsworth took 2 medals in the 50m Butterly, bronze in the open age group and Gold in the junior age group.
Hugo Bellamy was in good form, equalling or beating all of his personal best times. The pick of the bunch was silver in the 200 freestyle. With a pb of over 2 seconds,a silver medal and a national short course qualifying time, this event also meant Hugo will be considered for selection to the SER team travelling to Geneva in January. Hugo also gain an NQT in the 200m butterfly finishing in 4th place.
Sophie Lawrence swam 2 pbs in the butterfly events, her best being 4 second pb in the 200 butterfly, finishing 9th in the junior category.
Mia Poplawska performed well to equal her 200 freestyle pb and also competed in the 100 freestyle.
It was great to see our swimmers on such good form still so early in the season, and means confidence is high going into arena league round 2 this coming weekend.
