M11 Junior League Sat 21 April - Review

The weekend saw Hillingdon Swimming Club take part in the M11 Junior League Meet, with a mix of swimmers ranging from Elite 2 to Academy squads the meet was a great chance for competition and fun to be had. Overall the team finished 4th, with a fantastic display of skills on show from all swimmers. Most impressive to the coaching team was the underwater work being shown from all swimmers from starts and turns.
It was also great to see so many parents coming along to support the team as well, which further encouraged the swimmers, this then built upon the brilliant poolside attitude of the swimmers standing and cheering on each other though-out the meet.

Eindhoven Swim Cup 2018 - Meet Report

Earlier this month, Taylor Lovelock, Conor Fallon and Loulou Vos travelled to Eindhoven for the International Swim Cup / Dutch European Championships Selection Meet. For Taylor and Conor, it was their first international meet and an eye opener to senior level international swimming. On arrival, the team trained in the competition pool on the Thursday evening amongst an erray of clubs from other nations including Germany, Spain, Belgium, Slovenia and of course Holland.

On Day 1, Conor and Taylor started the meet positively with good early morning swims and Taylor PB's in his 200 Free. The highlight of Day 1 was Loulou's 200 Freestyle where she won the B Final in a lifetime best and club record of 2:00.37 and beat previous World and Olympic swimmers from other nations.

On Day 2, Loulou qualified for the A final in the 400 Freestyle early on and Taylor had a fantastic 100 Freestyle with a big PB (53.45). In the evening, Loulou again achieved another lifetime best and club record in the A final, just missing the auto qualifying time for European Championships by 0.8s.

Day 3, saw the best performance of Conor's in the 200 Back to achieve a lifetime best in the 200 backstroke and Loulou finished 4th in the 800 Freestyle final and the fastest Dutch swimmer in the event.

The weekend was a fantastic experience for all 3 swimmers that they can all use at meets still to come this season. Loulou has since been selected for European Championships as a result of her performance in the 200 Freestyle in Eindhoven. Congratulations Loulou on your first senior international!
