Swim Wales Summer Championships

Early August three Hillingdon swimmers travelled to Swansea to compete at the Swim Wales Summer Championships, this competition took place at the same time as the ASA Nationals in Sheffield.  Dillon Chana raced 5 events and made finals in all, coming away with 3 GOLDS and 1 SILVER. Dillon's 200 Back (2.21.50), 100 Fly (1.04.79) and 200 IM (2.23.75) would have qualified for ASA Nationals.  Henry Wareing and Adam Bennett also competed, Henry raced the 200 Fly, 200 IM and the 200 Free in which he PB'd (2.22.33).  Adam was busy racing on most days of the 7 day meet, he competed in 8 races and swam best times in 6!  This was a great result for Adam with 75% PB rate.  All three swimmers had a great end to the Season and gained valuable experience that will stand them in good stead for the 2016/17 season.  Well done to all three boys and Coach Matt.
