Communications TeamBath AS

It's a festive wrap from Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Sheffield, where the Swim England Winter Championships 2022 took place this weekend.

Competing across various events, our Team Bath AS stars had a good weekend swimming with some strong performances. Rue Fowler had an accomplished swim in the Junior 100m Back with a time of 1:02.37 in what was a tight race to qualify for the Finals. She further improved that time clocking 1:02.07 and placing a fantastic 4th place, with Millfield taking 1st, Hackney 2nd, and Warrington 3rd.

There were notable performances from Mark Edmundson, who placed 11th in the Open 100m Back heats. He was agonisingly close to securing a top 10 spot but missed out by just 0.2 seconds. In the Open 200m Back, Mark placed 13th.

The final results can be viewed here.  

Congratulations to the #blueandgoldarmy and all competing swimmers, parents, volunteers, and of course, our Team Bath AS coach, Sarah Cozens.

And it’s a wrap from Ponds Forge in 2022. Bring on long course in 2023!
