Swimmers attacked the last weekend of the Middlesex County Champs with enthusiasm and finesse. It was extremely pleasing to see every swimmer race tough and swim their hearts out, regardless of how many events they had. 

True champions swimming back to back races throughout the weekend, were teammates Victoria Bunimovich and Veronica Venuti. The girls raced the most events across the weekend and scored the highest club points for final and podium placings. A fantastic day Saturday from both girls, you would never have guessed that they both swam an 800 freestyle and finished 1st and 2nd at the start of the day! Their strength continued through to today where Veronica also picked up the club 50bk record amongst her medals. Their squad training partner Eddie Robinson continuously stepped up between heats and finals, despite having numerous events also. Eddie's event resilience is a reflection of the hard work he and RP have been completing recently. 

Edward Whittles was another swimmer who had a busy weekend. Edward secured a medal in every event he raced, along with 5 club records. Swimming multi events allows Edward to work on his processes for his beloved 400 IM! Distance training partner Lanre Pratt also had a solid weekend for applying processes and reaping the rewards. Lanre delivered on a smart race plan in his 400 freestyle, taking 7 seconds off his best time. In Lanre's heat was Yuriy Borak who also swam a 6 second best time. Yuriy displayed strength throughout all of his freestyle events, claiming the club record in the 14 year old 50m freestyle. Teammate Jason Mahmutoglu shone brightly in all sprint events, especially the 50 freestyle in which he dominated the field to be a body length ahead (in a club record). All 14/15/16 year old boys are in pursuit of their British Championship/Olympic Trials qualifying times - piecing the puzzle together to build the perfect race. Zoe Musial was someone who did exactly that this weekend on the 100 freestyle. Smashing her best time in the 100 freestyle, Zoe attained the Olympic Trials qualifying time by half a second!

The club has had a fantastic County Championships. It's always really hard to highlight a few swimmers. Everyone did a fantastic job and should feel very proud. Well done! We look ahead to the next meet, keep training hard!
