HEATSWill Foster started the day well with a pb in the 200IM of 2.14.05.
Lewis White contested one of his Paralympics events – the 400 Freestyle. He showed the form he’s in with the second fastest time he has ever recorded for the event, 4.28.69. He qualified for the final, ranked in 6th place.
Our respective Breaststroke and Backstroke specialists, Sarah Vasey and Ellie Baldwin ventured into the strange waters known as ‘the IM!’ But both were pleased to record respective PBs of 2.21.63 (last 12 months) & 2.22.60 (all time). Sarah was first reserve for the final in her age category.
Ellie recorded a time of 30.61 in the 50m Backstroke and was 2nd reserve for the final.
Our 14/16 girls 4x 100m Freestyle Relay team of Sophie Yendell, Michaela Stephen, Krissy Tomlinson and Georgina Walker almost equalled their Entry time and should be proud of the fact that they had qualified as a young team.
The 17 plus team of Amy Grant, Sarah Vasey, Harriet Cooper and Ellie Baldwin put themselves in a very strong position for the evenings final with a 2nd place ranking time of 3.52.60.
Lewis produced yet another pb in this his superb preparation for Rio. 4.26.27 for the 400 Freestyle.
The 17 plus girls dramatically improved their overall time by 3.49 seconds in the relay final but finished an agonising 4th just behind Sheffield, Plymouth & Stockport. Never the less a stunning performance.
