First weekend of 2014 Age Group CountiesThe 2014 Notts ASA County Champs are now in full swing and Bramcote swimmers got off to a great start. Days 1 and 2 took place at Water Meadows Leisure Centre in Mansfield on Saturday and Sunday 1st and 2nd March. 41 Bramcote swimmers competed over the course of a very full two days and we saw the usual mixture of whoops of delight and tears of frustration. Spectators and swimmers alike were entertained with Midland QT's, club records, finals, medals and champions. The highlights of the weekend include the success of 12 year olds Lauren Anderson, Josh Harris and Imogen Whiting in becoming County Champions and medallists and 10 year old Olivia Humphrey's medals in two events. We saw some spectacular personal bests from 9 year olds Tom Brompton, Jasmine Bryan, Archie Cooper, Merewyn Jones, Beth Roberts, Aidan Shaw, Summer Simpson & Connor Wilcox, 10 year olds Yanna Mihaylova, Chloe Pearson, Lilac Vigor & Joseph Whitchurch and 11 year olds Naomi Dilley, Matthew Spalton & Kade Theakston. These achievements-and others from the weekend's swimming are listed below.
Spare a thought for Toby Cooper, Ben Naish, Mollie Stentiford and Ryan Wilcox who unfortunately missed out on all the excitement of the weekend as a result of sickness or injury. We wish them all speedy recoveries.
Although, each session had its share of thrills and emotion, it was a long weekend for those spectators who had to fight for a seat and then endured the heat and stuffiness of the venue in order to support their swimmers. Thank you all. Thanks also to all our volunteer coaches, team managers and officials on poolside- Michelle, Sarah, Dianne, Lisa, Bridget, Sarah, Mel, Vicki, Geraldine and Scott.
All times have been entered on the club database, a massive job undertaken by Richard Brompton. Thanks Richard.
Full results from the County Champs can be seen here. The BAGCAT reports are also available on this link but in looking at the current placings remember that there are still 3 days of individual events left. A lot can-and will change before the competition is over. There is a break from competition this weekend and we get back into it again at Beechdale on 15th March.

Elly and Ben shine at DSE National Junior ChampionshipsThe Disablity Sport Events National Junior and Youth Championships took place this weekend, 1st and 2nd March, at Ponds' Forge in Sheffield. Bramcote swimmers Ben Foulston (13) and Elly Blacknell (12) were competing in this short course event on behalf of East Midlands region in both individual and relay events.
It was Elly's first appearance at this event and she won 3 individual SILVER medals in her age group (10/13yr) and class (S9). Elly won medals in the 50m Free, 100m Free and 50m Back. Elly's fast swimming also led to some good personal best times in these 3 events and a pb in the 50m Breaststroke too. In addition, Elly gained another SILVER medal as part of the women's 4 x 100 freestyle relay team. Congratulations Elly!
Ben has had a very successful season so far. In the autumn, he competed in both the DSE National Short Course Championships and as a S10 para-swimmer in the Midland Short Course Championships and Central Zonal meet, bringing home a haul of medals and titles in a wide range of events. These successes resulted in Ben moving at the start of the year to the ASA England National Talent Programme (Para-Swimming) and he is working towards selection for the World Talent Programme. This has incentivised him in he has been training really hard at Mansfield Nova B squad. The training really paid off this weekend when he swam 6 individual events and won 4 SILVER (50Fr, 100Bk, 100Fly, 200IM) and 2 BRONZE (100Fr, 400Fr) in his age group (14/16) and class (S10/SM10), with personal bests in all 6 events. Great swimming Ben!
Results from the day can be seen here.
Elly and Ben will be in action again at the Notts ASA County Champs on 15th and 16th March.
