Early Season PB's at London Winter Champs

on 08 November 2016
On Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th, a team of 23 swimmers from Elite 1 and Elite 2 went to compete at the 2016 London Winter Short Course Championships held at the London Aquatic Centre. The team swam great with swimmers gaining multiple early season PB's alongside many finalists and some great race skills. A stand out performance highlight was that Hillingdon took home the Gold medal in BOTH Junior and Senior for the Womens 200m Free, with Jemima Hall and Loulou Vos winning.

John and Matt commented on how well the Club performed considering it was the Elite groups first full meet of season, where all other Clubs attending had already raced mulitple times this season and some has just come off the back of training camps. The level of skills and race execution was fantastic to see and really encouraging off the back of a great start to the year in terms of training. The only sign of "rustyness" from a few of the team was the pre/post pool and warm up/swim down protocol, going forward, the importance of the above cannot be underestimated and will improve as the season goes on.

GOLD: Jemima Hall 200m Free Junior
