Bank holiday weekend was the start of the South West Summer Championships. Held at Plymouth, there were six swimmers from Paignton. On Saturday all six swimmers were in action in the 50m Fly. Emma made the final and finished seventh. Jess and Adam placed 13th. Jake and Alec recorded times either side of 30s and Jordan set a new PB.
Emma started Sunday’s sessions with the 100m Backstroke and made the final. Alec completed the morning session with the 400IM and was pleased to finish eighth. Swimmers and parents spent lunch outside enjoying the sunshine. The start of the afternoon session came just in time to prevent any serious sunburn though one or two swimmers were a little red! Adam can be pleased that he pipped Levin Veale in the 50m Free! Alec set a new PB in the 100m Fly.
Bank Holiday Monday was the hottest on record so perfect for a morning by the pool! Alec matched his PB to make the 200m Fly final and finished eighth. Jordan set another PB in the 50m Breaststroke finishing ahead of Jake and Alec. Jess was 14th in the 100m Breaststroke.
Overall some excellent efforts from the Paignton swimmers. Well done to Jess and Jake for competing despite the pressure of upcoming examinations.
