World and European Rankings

Post date: 05-May-2012 16:55:19

It seems fitting that the week of the GB National Long Course Championships in Sheffield, where Tina and Dave are competing for more individual gold medals, that the people in charge of swimming across Europe and the world (LEN and FINA respectively) should release their official rankings for the 2011 season.

Yes, you've guessed it, both Tina and Dave feature in these rankings!

Tina, in the 30-34 years age band Short Course Rankings

LEN European Rankings 2011

9th in the 50 free

5th in the 100 free

4th in the 200 IM

Dave, in the 25-29 years age band Short Course Rankings

LEN European Rankings 2011

6th in the 100 free

5th in the 200 free

7th in the 100 fly

8th in the 100 IM

FINA World Rankings 2011

5th in the 200 free

9th in the 100 free

FINA World Rankings All Time

7th 200 free (25-29 years - 2009 swim)

6th 400 IM (25-29 years - 2009 swim)

This is a really huge achievement for both of these swimmers, so huge congratulations to both of them. It's also worth noting that Tina and Dave will be moving up an age band for 2012, where the times get ever so slightly slower. With Tina continuing to drop time in all her events, expect a good size list this time next year. Dave on the other hand is lazy and doesn't get in the pool, so don't expect anything! ;-)
