Hi all,

What an amazing weekend. I'm still amazed at how many medals the swimmers gained. Out of 89 swims there were 25 Golds, 16 Silver and 9 Bronze. 24 swims were East Region qualifying times. I can't remember such an impressive 2 days.

Fantastic to see Jack Hill get a regional time 50 Backstroke but to then add to this in 100 backstroke was brilliant!

Kristin had the swim of her life smashing her 100 Breaststroke PB to add 100 Breaststroke to her 50 Breaststroke regional time, that was a great race to watch.

Abbie Lawrence had us on the edge of our seats as she gave everything to try for her 50 Fly regional time. So close she just needed slightly longer finger nails! Great to see such good progress in this event for Abbie though.

Eleanor White like Abbie just missed a 50 Backstroke Regional time but showing great progress in these and other events.

There were so many outstanding swims from everyone,  Swimmers coming back into form, swimmers topping already great regional times, swimmers with medals and swimmers who made great PB's showing they are moving ever closer to regional times.

Final word must go to Ellie Matthews who was on amazing form and finished by swimming the right side of 30 seconds in the final 50 Free event with a Regional time of 29.80. Ellie is moving on but for me as her coach she rewarded me with great swims right to her last swim.

Keep this up swimmers you all made me very proud and I with so much positive vibes it was impossible not to enjoy!
