A Bronze for Lucy at Nationals
Dylan Conway and Lucy Hawley began their first experience of Nationals up at Ponds Forge, Sheffield on Tuesday, 4th August.
Lucy, swimming in the 50 Fly put in a solid swim in the morning heats and managed to produce a new personal best which saw her outswim a large contingent of her age group to make it through to the final as second fastest qualifier. That evening, in the last of the individual finals Lucy did herself and all her club mates at KRSC proud by putting in another strong performance which saw her produce yet another personal best, bagging herself a Bronze medal.
Dylan swam well in the heats of the 100 Fly and 400 IM but unfortunately did not manage to make it through to the evenings finals.
The following day saw Dylan produce another good performance in the 50 Breaststroke, but again he was unlucky not to make the final with the level of competition very strong. However he came back on the Thursday and produced a strong swim to qualify for the final of the 200 Fly where he placed 9th. Having managed to make his first final he got himself on a roll producing personal best swims back to back over the last two days in the 100 and 200 Breast to make the final of both placing 9th and 8th respectively.
Dylan was joined on Thursday and Friday evening by Tom Urry who competed in the Multi-Disability events of the 50 and 100 Freestyle where he finished 20th in both.
After a long week of competition Head Coach, Damien Bryan, reflected that the swimmers had learned a lot and did the club proud in their first ever nationals. All our athletes who have competed at nationals over the last week have swam well and are already looking forward to the new season and planning on continuing the progress of this season.
