Great swims and lifetime bests also achieved by Matt Lynch, Isabelle Marshall and Josh Ward during the meet.

The competition has upper cut off times so swimmers who have previously gone faster than these are not eligible under Swim England promoters conditions to enter these events. The idea being that developing swimmers new to the sport can compete at their own championships seperate from the County A Championships in January and February, where they have the chance to compete against their similar peers and gain a love of the sport on an even footing thus bringing on the athletes and Champions of the future, for many this was their first medal won at a competition. A great ethos to instill in our athletes for the next generation.
