Nationals preview

British Gas ASA National Swimming Championships 2014

Lincoln Vulcans Swimming Club will be represented by a total of 7 athletes at this years Championships with another swimming with the Beacon Programme based in Sheffield. Brad Westlake, Abbie Burr, Tara Haworth and Sophie Hart are competing in 17 events between them; disability swimmer, Becky Franks, will take again compete at Nationals and overseas-based Lauren Freeman and Oliver Brache will also be taking part.

Westlake will be looking to cement his place as a very promising up-and-coming athlete having made the step up to senior competition this season. Burr and Haworth are in the lower half of the dual age-band so will look to enhance their ranking and competitive experience in preparation for next season. Hart will be wanting to compete in the final of both events she has qualified for, currently just outside the top ten in the country.

Maya Westlake has chosen to represent City of Sheffield, the region’s Beacon Programme, which allows her compete individually but additionally with relay teams expected to medal.

There is also hope for Emily Walsh who may still qualify for the National Open Water Championship if she wins the Regional competition in early July.

Head coach Michael Glossop adds: “These swimmers deserve much credit for all the hard work they have put in since I arrived in March. All the swimmers in the programme have adapted well to my coaching philosophies and are starting to reap the benefits of improved skills and technique. I’m excited for this years National Championships but even more so for the years to come with so much promise on show.”

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.

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.

Cardiff Swim Camp blog 2

Day 3

Wednesday dawned and many of the swimmer were a little subdued, for some it was the realization that more sleep and rest were needed. For others it was the idea that after the morning session, they would only be half way through the training sessions for the week!!!

The mornings long course sessions was an I.M set, which many found tough. land training was done before the afternoon swim so that there was a longer rest period, much to the delight of many. The short course session finished with team relays and a chance for each team to have points deducted. The swimmers really enjoyed this, and it changed the points table greatly. It also helped teams to become more motivated to winning prizes at the end of the week.

Back at the hostel, rest and study before dinner and the evening activity.!!! All swimmers were intrigued as they did not know what to expect!!. Each team provided with a bag and team leaders had to nominate a member. In the bag, were items such as glue, bubble wrap, tissue, paper, various Halloween items, bowls, pens, tights, scissors and napkins. The task was to dress their nominated person in a Halloween costume ready for the catwalk. All teams had 1 hour to come up with their creation. Judging categories were: best use of resources, best made design, most impressive, best accessories, best effort. Everyone worked well together in their teams while Noleen organised the music. The catwalk opened with Abi leading the way to "isn't she lovely". She was followed by Taylor strutting along to "thong song". Henner's was next to do a twirl in a shrinking outfit to "this is why I'm Hot". Callum perfected his catwalk moves, swinging his hips, he was endearing to his fans blowing kisses at them, till Rory finished the show with a tune of "sexy and I know it". Great moves to "Gangham Style.

A photo shoot of our models followed - watch out Britain and Ireland's next top model!!!. Once the judges had composed themselves, marking began in earnest for teams to have points deducted. It's fair to say, that everyone made a great effort and enjoyed the evening. The designers, along with their outfits and models, will be in the next edition of vogue!!!.

Day 4

At breakfast, all swimmers were very quiet. The training schedule is now starting to take its toll!!!. With the knowledge that there were only three sessions left, and an evening out tonight, morale was boosted. Team leaders were once again asked to nominate a person from their team without knowing why. All will be revealed later!!!.

The morning swim session consisted of a skills session, making the most of diving blocks at both ends of the pool. The swimmers concentrated on starts, turns and breakouts. This was followed by a speed set. Despite the hard training during the camp, many of the swimmers are beginning to look a lot stronger in the water. The early morning long course sessions, are challenging to many who have not had so much long course experience, although this will pay dividends later on in the season.

The afternoon started with an eventful journey!. Adam was keen to get to the pool before Alison's bus, so he encouraged Suzette to lead the way. Land training followed with stretches and flexibility the 2 hour afternoon session was Fly and Kick. Once we arrived back at the hostel, everyone had to think about packing for home, it was hard to believe, we would be travelling home tomorrow as the week had gone so quick. Tara led the way by donning the hoover and cleaning up the girls dormitory!.

Everyone is anticipating the evening out tonight, and there's much talk as to where the destination is. Friday will bring our last swim session followed by land training. The much enjoyed Pizza Hut Buffet, will follow before we say our goodbyes to Cardiff and head for home.
