25th-27th May 2019, Norwich
Congratulations to Joe on his achievement at the Regionals!
The second weekend of SE East Region Summer Long Course Championships was held on Sat 25th to Mon 27th May 2019 in Norwich. The competition is reserved to Age Group Swimmers (ages: 11/12, 13, 14 yrs).
Joe Reynolds (14) qualified for two events. He started his experience at the Champs on the Sunday with the 100 breast, which he swam brilliantly to touch pad in 1.22.21, improving his time by 2 seconds in just two months. The powerful race allowed Joe to move up the rankings by an astonishing 13 places and claim a well deserved 23rd place.
On the Monday, Joe repeated his feat by swimming the 50 breast for the first time ever under 36 seconds: completing the race in 35.92 (19th), Joe not only achieved a LC PB, but beat his SC PB by nearly half a second.
Over the past few months Joe has massively improved on the quality of his training, with high levels of engagement and will to push himself beyond his limits, and his accomplishments are the natural consequence of the smart and determined daily work that Joe commits to. Well done Joe!
Also well done to Joe’s biggest fan, George, whose support has been fantastic and delightful to watch!
