Youngsters make HUGE impression at the NUEL Meet!

CWSC Membership

Over the weekend a large group of predominantly black hats and AD swimmers raced at the iconic London Aqatics Centre. Delivering numerous outstanding swims, the group made a huge impression against their competitors on both Saturday and Sunday, winning TOP VISITING CLUB! 

For some, it was one of their first experiences in a long course pool. Although daunting at first, the swimmers soon got their head around it and battled through.

Swimmers were well prepped by the coaches to beging the routine of pre pool on arrival, coach brief and debrief before and after races. Everyone committed to this and were a great example to the club. A huge well done to all swimmers, especially some of the older swimmers acting as role models for the younger group.

With competitions as successful as these, it's always hard to identify a few stand out swimmers. When asked, coaches complimented the whole group, well done. Highlighted swimmers/swims include:

Daniel Jazebi - Daniel swam both days, all day and focused throughout the entire time. Daniel had a really good 200m Free, 2.52.11 - kicking his legs all the way with good underwater at each wall. 

Chloe Zaimi - Chloe swam 11 races across the 2 days and medalled in 3 of them - achieving top 10 in all her other races! Chloe's 50 Back was particularly good where she won gold with 41.03 seconds. 
Keira Osorio - All of Keira's races were consistent and strong. Her 200m IM stood out dropping 11.07 seconds off her PB with a new time of 3.07.00. Keira also displayed great team spirit, cheering for the others. 
Maia Colquhoun - Maia was very consistent and took all feedback on board. Maia's 100 free was good dropping 13.75 seconds. Being one of the youngest swimmers, Maia set a great example on how to behave around poolside. 
Luke Pryce-Jones - Luke came away with a medal for almost every race that he swam. 10 races and he medalled in 9! Luke's racing mentality really stood out.
A huge step forward for the developing swimmers in the club. Thank you and well done to all involved.
