The Midlands have a wealth of talented swimmers who attended for these championships including Olympic medallists and World medallists at junior and senior levels. The event combined east and west midlands and the competition was intense.
Marlins took a team of eight to this event and this year there were both A and B finals for the 16 fastest swimmers overall.
Our top performer was Will Brookes, who narrowly missed a medal with a fantastic 4th place in the 100 IM breaking the minute time for this twice as well as gaining 2nd place in the 100m back B final in another PB time.
Joshua Horobin made 2 A finals in the 50m Brs, 7th and 100m Brs in a high-class field in both events.
Sam Brookes, although only 15, made the B finals in the 200 Brs and 100 IM improving his 100 IM time in the final to move from 7th to 2nd in that final.
The results are listed below.
Well done to all those who qualified. Everyone swam well this weekend and some were exceptional.
This was not just physical skill on show but each swimmer adjusted something about their race, including pacing, trying new dives, altering turns and UW phases and stroke skills. Not only did they do that but also they executed these new skills under pressure at a quality competition.
Belper Marlin SC can be proud of your efforts!
