20180512 South West Regional Age Group Competition
South West Regional Age Group Competition
Chippenham ASC had 5 swimmers who qualified and swam at the South West Regional Age Group Competition, held at Hengrove, Bristol on 12th and 13th May and Millfield on 19th and 20th May 2018. They were;
Amelie Bartlett, Holly Parker, Louis Nicholls, Niamh Irwin and Peter Weston-Burt.
Sadly due to the number of entries from the South West, Chippenham ASC had 4 entries deleted from the races. The team therefore competed in a total of 9 races over the four days. Everyone swam well with a high number on PB's in this long course event. Amelie Bartlett secured a place in the final of the 100m Breaststroke by finishing in 8th place in the heats. Swimming again in the final Amelie finished in 8th place, a fantastic achievement!
In a change to previous years, the 800m Freestyle and 1500m Freestyle were available to both male and female swimmers, regardless of their age. The qualification for these events were not through gaining qualifying times but through the swimmers position on the South West rankings. Having already competed in the 800m Freestyle event in Plymouth, Luke Brown also qualified and swam the 1500m Freestyle on 19th May at Hengrove, Bristol. Luke swam well to finish in 5th place in his age group of 17 years and over.
Well done to all swimmers.
