Another Medal For Eastleigh At The Regional Championships
It's another medal for Eastleigh and for Issy at the South East Regional Championships! Issy added to yesterday's gold by taking silver in the 200m Backstroke with a new 13-yrs and open-age Club Record of 2:30.49! Marie Godwin's previous Open record of 2:32.15 had stood since 1998 and to break it at such a young age is a magnificent achievement by Issy.
We also had Club Record breaking swims by Nathan and Freddie in the boys 50m Butterfly, each lowering their own Club Record times in the 11/under and 12-13 age categories to 33.57 and 31.54 seconds respectively. Nathan also smashed his 200m Freestyle PB by 14 seconds, setting a new personal best time of 2:30.65, and took 2 seconds off his own Club Record in the 400m IM with a time of 6:02.03, finishing in 10th position.
There was double-record breaking in the girls 13-yrs 100m Butterfly with both Evie and Emily dipping under Rhyseren's recent Club Record in the same heat. Emily touched first to set a new 13-yrs and Open age Club Record time of 1:13.27. Emily also took 9th place in the 50m Breaststroke, just missing out on the final with a time of 37.41.
In the boys 13-yrs 100m Breaststroke, our County Championship silver medallist, Max, took 2 seconds off his PB with an excellent time of 1:25.34, finishing in 23rd position.
In the girls 13-yrs 400m Freestyle, Rhyseren achieved an excellent time of 5:07.53 to finish in 22nd position.
Terrific swims, well done all!
