Special mention goes to the five Ware SC swimmers who qualified for the 'Skins' event where the fastest 8 swimmers in the 12yr and under 100M IM, and the fastest 8 swimmers in the 13yr and over 200m IM took part. This was fast, furious and very exciting to watch, essentially it’s a knock-out race with a swimmer eliminated per round leaving the final two fastest swimmers in a head-to-head to win a cash prize. Each round was part of a medley swim (either Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke or Freestyle) picked at random out of a hat by the previous eliminated swimmer. In the 25m Medley Skins event for the boys Tommy Liddiard finished 6th, Harrison Egerton finished 5th, Sidney Thompson finished 4th and Callum Cox finished 3rd. In the 50m Medley Skins event for the boys Thomas Currie finished 4th. Congratulations and well done to those swimmer who qualified and took part.

Special congratulations to the four club swimmers achieving County Consideration Times; Victoria George and Callum Cox in 50m Butterfly and to Daniel Harrison and Tommy Liddiard in 100m Breaststroke.

Thank you to Claire and the coaching team for giving up their time to encourage and support our swimmers, and to our officials for helping to ensure that the sessions ran smoothly. Full details and all other results can be accessed from the members login area click here.
