Atlantis Splash into 2013

On Sunday 6th January, Atlantis took a team of over 40 swimmers down to Littlehampton''s Splash into 2013 open meet, held at Bognor Regis .

After the festive period and disruptive training due to the holidays, it was a great start to the new year, with many first timers competing as well as many looking for more county qualifying times or an opportunity to just race again !

Overall the team took 11 golds, 10 silvers and 12 bronzes, to add to the numerous personal best times and a massive 37 county qualifying times.

There were some superb individual swims, notably from Lauren Pedel (12yrs) winning the 50m back, Rose Stride (12yrs) winning the 200m freestyle, Maddie Carey (11yrs) winning the 50m and 200m freestyle and 50m fly and Ethyl Whyman (9yrs) winning 50m backstroke.

But performance of the day came from Rebecca Barber (9yrs) who had a wonderful day, winning 5 golds in the 50m breastroke, freestyle and fly events, the 200m freestyle and the 100m individual medley. She also won a bronze medal in the 50m backstroke. Well done Rebecca!
