5 AUG - SUCCESS AT NATIONAL AGE GROUPS 2014
Winsford Swimming Club had two National Age Group Qualifiers this season with Alisha Hawkins competing in the 400 Free, 800 Free and 1500 Open Water and Adam Blackshaw competing in the 200 Fly. For both Alisha and Adam this was there first time at the Nationals however they were both very determined to do good, very, very good.
The National Championships in Sheffield is where the very fastest swimmers in Britain age 12-14 battle it out for National honors. The qualifying times are very tight and so to achieve a NQT is a great achievement in itself however we were not going there just make up the numbers. Both Alisha and Adam were going there to perform and that is what they did. - full report on news page.
