EM Regional Championships

Swim England East Midlands Championships were held over 5 days in April / May.

Kettering had 19 swimmers qualifying in 2022 - this is THIRTEEN more than the last Regional Champs which were 3 years ago.

Twelve of these swimmers were making their Regional Long Course Champs debut, including Archie, Charlotte and Paul whose debuts were certainly delayed by the pandemic. In addition, Masters swimmer Lyndsay made a return to the competition after a 20 year hiatus!

First timers also included Cole, Daniel, David, Fin, Grace, Harris, Isaly-Mae, Kaeley, Lily, Magenta and Megan.

We lost a few swims due to ill health, but we still witnessed PB's and Club Records.

The first timers were joined by "old hands" Emily, Curtis and James.

After 61 swims our swimmers reached 23 finals - well done to Lily, Fin, Cole, Magenta, Emily, Grace, Daniel and James.

Medallists were:

Silver - Lily (200m Breaststroke)

Bronze - Grace (50m / 100m Breaststroke), James (50m Butterfly)

Well done to everyone, and thank you to the Coaches, Team Managers and Officials that gave their time.
