Well done to our three swimmers who qualified for this seasons East Regions LC championships held at Norwich's 50m pool.

Both Rex and Izaak swam the 50m breaststroke and Kitty in the 50m backstroke.

First up was Izaak swimming as an 11 year old in the 11/12 age group. Never competing in a 50m pool, it was going to be a big learning curve for Izaak. But after a very good swim in the heats, finishing the 3rd fastest 11 year old in The East Region, he was placed as a reserve for the finals later in the day. After all 8 finalist elected to swim, Izaak was stood down. Although this was disappointing for Izaak, to be a reserve for a final after his first swim in a 50m pool and a year younger than the majority of his competition, was very impressive.

With Rex swimming at this competition previously, he had the experience of competing at a high level and in a 50m pool. Despite a good start, a couple of other 13 year olds managed to just inch ahead of Rex in the final 7m, meaning that he dropped a couple of places from his ranked position. Although this was disappointing for Rex, hopefully the experience will ensure he can learn from the experience.

Last up was Kitty, swimming at her first major competition in the 50m backstroke. Swimming in the first heat, Kitty managed to climb up the rankings just finishing outside of her PB. With lots of these swimmers able to train in a 50m pool, Kitty was always going to be at a disadvantage especially as when swimming backstroke, you have no idea where you are along the pool, until you reach the 5m flags. Kitty managed to better her entry ranking and overall she should be very pleased with her swim.

I'm pleased to say that all three Herford swimmers enjoyed competing at this high level-only the very best swimmers from 6 counties qualify for this competition and with Izaak and Rex heading back next weekend for further events, I hope that the experience they've gained, will stand them in good stead for future events.
