Swimming success for Bognor’s squad

BOGNOR Regis swimming club made quite a splash at the first competitive event of 2018.


The squad have been training hard at their base in The Arena sports centre.


Hopes were high ahead of the first contest of the season just down the road in Littlehampton for the Splash Meet.


The squad did not disappoint – coming home with a range of medals from the competitive racing.


In total, the squad swam 65 times and recorded 44 personal bests – meaning two-thirds of all swims were record breaking.


Coaches said within the swims there were seven county qualifying times.


Among the standout performers were Leo Mitchell, who won four silver medals, and Amber Macrae who bagged a bronze.


Speaking after the event, Jan Malpas, of the swimming club, said: “What an excellent start to 2018!”


Bognor Regis Swimming Club offers competitive swimming training run by qualified teachers and coaches.


The club was founded in 1965, and since that time has continued to provide swimming coaching for novices through to national standard competitive swimmers.


During the week, the club runs training sessions that are split into different squads based on the ability of a swimmer.


Most start out in Starfish which caters for those fresh out of swim school who can travel 50 metres and dive in the pool from the blocks.


It progresses through to Marlins, which is the youth squad where swimmers will usually be over 14.


There is even space for older enthusiasts in the masters category, where the only necessity is being able to swim lengths.
