Atlantis at Counties Medal Assult in the Finals

28th February 2018

The final weekend of the County Swimming Championships once again produced some amazing performances from the Atlantis swimmers. 

 

Atlantis collected a further eleven individual gold medals, several championship titles and even some county records! 

 

Zoe Cawsey claimed the first gold of the weekend winning the 200m freestyle with Toby Van de Hut adding a further gold in the 200m backstroke. 

 

Individual Medley supremo Eleanor Morris won gold in both the 200m and 400m events and bagging further Championship titles.  

 

Jacob Davis hit the high notes and is now the county record holder in both the 50m and 100m breaststroke with times of 32.61 seconds and 1 minute 11.90 seconds respectively and in turn claiming the bragging rights of the fastest Davis in the county from his sister Lily. 

 

Tessene Arezki had a fantastic weekend of competition the highlight of which was winning her age group gold in the 50m fly.  Amber Ranson added yet more golds in both the 50m and 100m backstroke. Sophie Rodwell showed the field of eleven-year-old girls a clean pair of heels cruising to a comfortable gold medal in the 50m backstroke. Ollie Colombo finished a really successful Championship adding a 50m freestyle medal to his collection and teammate Devon Harwin swam brilliantly winning silvers in the two breaststroke events. 

 

Training partners Kiran Sandhu, Anna Sayers and Sofia Velasco have proved that dedication and determination really does produce results adding a collective seven medals to the Atlantis total. 

 

Head coach Andy Lobley said that it was a tough competition this year but Atlantis has performed really well with some outstanding individual performances. We have lots of races coming up for all of our squads and look forward to seeing more great swims.
