Bognor swimmers race to medal rush

Bognor REGIS swimming club has enjoyed a glittering start to the season – picking up a host of medals at competitions across Sussex.

 

The team, based at Arena Sports Centre in Westloats Lane, have already made their mark in a range of regional competitions in the past few weeks.

 

First up was the County Qualifier Swimming Competition, which saw Bognor swimmers take away three medals.

 

The star was Amber Macrae, who won a 200m butterfly gold and 50m freestyle bronze. Leo Mitchell also took to the podium, securing a 50m freestyle silver.

 

At the end of the competition, Macrae, Mitchell and Logan Hickmore qualified for the next County Championships in February, 2018.

 

Next up was the Annual Eastbourne Swimming Club Level 3 Open Meet.

 

Bognor Regis Swimming Club entered 12 swimmers, who won six medals between them. Coaches were equally proud that the day’s competition also delivered 32 personal best times in many of the nine different swimming disciplines they entered.

 

Medals were won by: Amber Macrae (100m butterfly gold); Leo Mitchell (50m back crawl silver and 100m individual medley silver; Logan Hickmore (100m breaststroke bronze) Hannah Clarke (100m freestyle bronze) and William Pinto (100m freestyle bronze).

 

The club are now busy preparing for the Bognor Regis Swimming Club Open Meet at Felpham Leisure Centre on December 3.

 

This will also include the Santa Sprint and give members a chance to bag even more medals.

 

Jan Malpas, of the club, said new members were always welcome, adding: “Our excellent team of coaches will help you to learn to swim competitively or improve your swimming ability, whichever you wish to do.”
