Super Swimming Success!

9th May 2016

Adam Wilkes, one of our pupils in Year 11 competed in the East Midlands Regional Swimming Championships last weekend with fantastic results! Adam is now East Midlands Champion in the 16 year old age group for both the 200m backstroke and 50m backstroke and he also came second in the 100m backstroke and 100m butterfly. He also won 2 golds and 1 silver in the relay team events.

Adam set personal best times in 5 out of the 6 events he competed in.  The rankings are yet to be updated but it looks like he should be in the top 10 in the UK for 200m backstroke which is amazing!  The qualifying window for the British nationals doesn’t finish until the end of May but at this stage it looks likely that he will qualify for the British nationals in all 3 backstroke events.  

Congratulations Adam we are all very proud of you.
