YCBC Autumn Extravaganza

posted 5 Oct 2017, 08:59 by Team Jorvik
In September a total of 27 swimmers from all of our competitive squads made the short journey over to Leeds for this all-weekend gala, where they had the opportunity to swim in all events from 50m to 200m in all strokes plus 100/200/400m IMs.  Many of them were pushed outside of their comfort zones by being entered either for events they had never attempted before or strokes they would not normally choose to swim!  In a testament to their characters and abilities, and to David's training methods, they weren't phased by this, gave it their all and came away having swum some great times and even won medals.

With so many huge PBs, it is hard to single out the best swims but Jake and Amy deserve a special mention for each achieving PBs/new times in all 9 of their races, with Callum close behind on 7 and Tom and Emma P-D with 6 each.  Congratulations to Jake and Joe S for swimming new NER qualifying times in 50m Back and 50m Free respectively.  And to the following to all won Gold medals: Joe S, Tom, Callum (2), Laura, and Joe C (2).

A very positive start to the season, which augers well for the forthcoming Yorkshire Winter Competition and NERs.
