IAPS National Swimming Finals in London

A great day for Annabelle and Charlotte at the IAPS National Swimming Finals on Saturday! Both girls qualified for this prestigious event following superb performances at our regional qualifier held at The King’s School in Coventry earlier in the year. 

Annabelle competed in the U12 50m Butterfly and Charlotte the U13 50m Backstroke. This is always a special event given that it takes place in the London Aquatics Pool used for the 2012 London Olympic Games. Both girls had competed in this pool before but nevertheless it was one to look forward to! 

They both put out creditable performances on the day in their respective heats with Charlotte just missing out on finals and placing 12th nationally!  Annabelle swam a personal best in a fast heat to finish 4th, which placed her 7th going into the final from 20 competitors. As you wold expect, the final was tough but it was great to see her holding her own and finishing 7th nationally. Well done to both swimmers and thank you to Mrs Yule for accompanying the girls and to our loyal supporters for making the trip to London!
