Camden Swimmers' Success at London Swimming Age Group Regional Championships

​Camden Swiss Cottage’s younger swimmers, aged between 11 and 14, faced their biggest challenge of the season so far with the London Swimming Regional Age Group Championships, held at Crystal Palace over two weekends.

Alexis Lambropoulos (12) made six finals for Swiss Cottage, just missing out on a number of podium finishes before claiming silver in 200m freestyle.

Julia Murphy (13) won triple bronze in the 50m freestyle, 50m breaststroke and 200m Individual Medley, while Gabriele Giovannoni (12) showed great endurance to take two bronzes – in the tough 1500m freestyle and 400m Individual Medley events.

Ella McEver (11) claimed an impressive bronze in the 200m breaststroke despite competing against swimmers a year older than herself. Ella also took fourth in the shorter 100m event. Other bronze medallists were Marliese Rittenhouse (13) and Lauren Brantley (14), who both powered to their medals in the 100m butterfly.

Making finals for Camden Swiss Cottage and finishing in the top 8 in a very tough field were Brandon Biss (11), Ella McEver (11), Lyelle Kahaner (12), Alexis Lambropoulos (12), Alexander Chen (12), Gabriele Giovanonni (12), Julia Murphy (13), Marliese Rittenhouse (13), Amir Castronovo (13), Lauren Brantley (14), Clementine Butler Brown (14) and Ally Dill (14).

Camden Swiss Cottage also claimed a further medal when the 14-16 years men’s quartet of Graham Brantley, Mika Fitzpatrick-Suen, Joseph Wildisen and Alexander Borisov clinched silver in the 4 x 200m freestyle relay.
