Well done guys on some good swimming. There were plenty of positives, new NER times, Long Course pbs,  but there were also plenty of elements that we can work on over the coming months. Onwards and upwards!! Lets push hard and work on those basics that cost seconds- breathing patterns, streamlines etc!!

 

Sarah Fisher

Development Coach

 

Congratulations swimmers on some fine swimming. Extra congrats to Cameron on his medals and club record and also to all our finalists.

It’s great to see that quite a few NER QTs were also achieved at the Yorkshire’s too!

CITY OF SUNDERLAND NEW YEAR MEET

SUNDERLAND AQUATIC CENTRE

18th/20th January 2019

A small squad of City’s more experienced swimmers who train under the guidance of Leisure Service’s senior coach Andy Pearce and Development Coach Sarah Fisher travelled to Sunderland to compete in the City of Sunderland New Year Meet.

This long course meet gave swimmers valuable experience in the transition between short course and long course swimming.

Regional medallist Cameron Green aged fourteen took the plaudits winning gold in the 100m, 200 and 800m freestyle, and 50m and 100m breaststroke. His time of 9.27.67 in the 800m freestyle was a new club record in the 13/14 years age group.

He also went on to clinch silver in the 50m and 100m butterfly, 100m backstroke and 50m freestyle.

Next on top of the rostrum and swimming in the 10/11 age group was emerging talent Freddy Dean. His wins came in the 50m freestyle and 50m breaststroke and he then placed third in the 100m breaststroke.

Fifteen year old Fraser Buxton looked confident in winning the 50m breaststroke and he also claimed bronze in the 50m butterfly.

Kiera Hinchcliffe was the clubs double medal winner when she finished first in the twelve years 200m backstroke and third in the shorter 100m event

Gracie Beaumont swam a highly competitive 200m backstroke in the thirteen years age group to claim silver and fifteen year old Sam Akers of Keighley went under the magic minute to finish third in the 100m freestyle in a time of 59.30

With forty seven top ten fishes the club can look forward to the forthcoming long course season with optimism.

SHEFFIELD PONDS FORGE

14TH-16TH DECEMBER 2018

Archie Minto and Cameron Mander were City’s only representatives at this high quality meet and the competition was always going to be tough.

Having qualified for four events and swimming as a Junior (15 years and under) it was Minto who swam to three personal best times and a club record.

His time of 58.85 in the 100m butterfly event broke a club record which had stood since 1996 and placed him 26th in this highly competitive field.

His times of 2.12.00 in the 200m butterfly and 2.11.35 in the 200m backstroke were also personal best times and he also competed in the 200m individual medley.

Mander competed in the 100m breaststroke event and touched the wall in a very creditable time of 1.10.73.

Both swimmers who train with Andy Pearce and Sarah Fisher on Bradford Council’s Leisure Services Aquatics Competition Programme can now look forward to a short Christmas break before training resumes in earnest in the New Year.
