Carrying through the momentum from last weekend, all age groupers were excited to see what the second weekend of racing would bring at Crystal Palace.

The campaign started with 11 year old Veronica Venuti who stood out in the first session. Veronica finalled in the 100 backstroke a year young in her age group category. Swimming a huge personal best, Veronica's determination carried her through to winning...

CWSC National and Regional squad swimmers had an OUTSTANDING weekend of racing against the very best in London. Last weekend the swimmers started a 2 weekend back to back racing campaign at the London Aquatics Centre. Reaping rewards from their extremely hard and committed training efforts, the swimmers stood out as some of the best in the Region - technically, skill and time wise. It was fantastic to see swimmers maturely approaching races, racing smart, as well as having professional feedback conversations with coaches post swims.  13 year old Edward Whittles...

The 14-16 year old boys started the successful campaign with a HUGE relay effort jumping up 5 places to finish in BRONZE medal position in the 4x100 fc relay.

This weekend saw yet again an abundance of personal best times and podium finishes from National and Regional Performance at the Beckenham Easter Meet. The competition was based at the London Aquatics Centre.The meet was a gruelling 3 days of 3 sessions. Managing emotion throughout the extended weekend was key to success. The environment was hot, swim down limited and the sessions were long (12 hour days). Nevertheless, our swimmers saw this as an opportunity to work their resilience and rose to the challenge. Swimmers backed up events successfully without...

Club swimmer Cameron van der Burgh has just claimed GOLD at the Fina World sc Championships in China.   The hardest of his two entered events, Cameron had to emotionally control himself through 2x100m breaststrokes yesterday in order to qualify for the final today. Starting off 9th with the heat swim, going in to the final 6th, Cam had it all under control and dominated the first 75m of the final. Proving he is the worlds best with his race processes and underwater phases, his rates were spot on with 15m to go. You'll...
