50MTR TIME TRIAL 21.7.21
Firstly my thanks to swimmers and helpers for making this event happen.
This was our first serious competitive swim for well over a year and for our younger swimmers it was the first time they were under racing conditions for 50 mtr swims.
Our lane 1 swimmers just swam 25 mtrs for Butterfly but 50 mtrs for everything else. It is important to note that all swimmers only had a minimum recovery time before swimming the next stroke so it was a strenuous workout and I did not expect as many PB times as we got.
There were many exceptional swims but the standout one for me was James Ellis and his 50mtr time of 44.39 which looking at the National times was the 3rd fastest for a 9 year old boy this year - well done James. (as this was a timing session and not a designated meet his time will not show on the National Ratings) but a sign of things to come for James.
Of the girls Ava Burkill and Phoebe Ellis showed a massive total improvement of over 50 seconds which just shows what hard work can do.
Overall a very productive session and I hope the spectators enjoyed seeing their swimmers at last.
