British Champs update - Sunday

Update 1 (am):

Hugh:
Last night Brad finished 3rd in his 100 backstroke after a re-swim at the end of the session - he had finished 3rd in the original race in a time of 58.61 but a problem with the starting equipment meant a re-swim which he went 58.41 in.

Two more swims left, Tara in the 100 Butterfly and Brad 200 IM.

British Champs update - Saturday

Update 1 (am):

Hugh:
Maya had a good swim last night only 0.76 off qualifying time, finishing a close 2nd in her final, both swimmer and coach happy.

Tara makes her 1st appearance at these champs this morning, 200 Butterfly and Brad has his 100 Backstroke.

More later.

Hugh

Ps. Tara was a little start struck last night at the pool, didn't know which direction to look in.


Update 2 (pm):

Hugh: Tara was very nervous before her race, competed well with a small PB in her 200m Butterfly, a great swim considering it was her first major meet and is still a little star struck.

Brad has qualified 4th for the Junior 200 Back final, his time 1sec outside his current best time, looking for a better time this evening.


Hello guys its maya and Tara.

Looking forward to Brad’s 100 back tonight, he's looking smooth and slick in the water!

Hi it's Tara just thought I'd mention there are some wonderful views from where I'm sat.

British Champs update - Friday

Update 1 (am):

Maya Westlake swims in the 200m Freestyle and Ollie Bitowt goes in the 1500m this morning.

Maya here, again hehe. Another day here at Leeds! It's my birthdaaayyyyyyy woo the big 16 and I'm stuck in a swimming pool... Brill. Will keep you updated, it's warm-up time:)

Feeling pretty fresh for my 1500 this morning! Hoping for a fast time later on! - Ollie B

Good luck to both swimmers from everyone at Vulcans and Happy Birthday to Maya!


Update 2 (pm):

Hugh: Maya produced a great 200m FC heat with a swim of 2.05.64 - happy swimmer and coach, looked good and swam it smart, against some very fast swimmers to finish second overall in the 16/under heats.

Ollie went 16:28 in his 1500m, he was in a tough heat and got detached from the race after 600m, a little disappointed with his swim.

Maya 2nd fastest for her final, she races at 7.06pm, needs to go 1.8secs quicker to get on European Jnr squad time -required 2:03.84.

We arrived safe and sound and went straight to the pool to have a swim.

Brad and Maya shared a lane with Fran Halsall and Kromowidjojo, the 100m Freesyle Olympic Gold Medalist. They both felt good in the water.

Left the pool at 7pm in time for tea and Coronation Street before early to bed and ready to race in the morning. Maya up first in the 100m Free and Brad at the end of the session in the 200 Back.
