Bishop's Stortford Swimming Club members bagged more than 60 medals at the Regional Qualifier Gala hosted by Thurrock Swimming Club
Bishop's Stortford Swimming Club members bagged more than 60 medals at the Regional Qualifier Gala.
The nine-year-old boys' squad of Arthur Longman, Caulder Paxton, Elliot Hall and Samuel Bird performed brilliantly and showed great promise for the future with at least one of them getting a medal in every event they entered.
The 12/13-year-old girls were particularly dominant, especially in the 200m breaststroke and freestyle where they took all three medals, and in the 50m butterfly where cousins Jessie and Emma Fields claimed gold and silver respectively.
Stortford's grand total at the meet, which was hosted by Thurrock Swimming Club, was 22 gold medals, 20 silver and 21 bronze.
The older swimmers were also chasing times for the Swim England East Region Championships and many obtained them, but unfortunately they will not get a chance to show their skills on that stage just yet as all events have been postponed due to the coronavirus crisis.
