ISA National Swimming

On Saturday 30th November, five of our children travelled to the Olympic Pool, Stratford to compete in the ISA National Swimming Championships 2019.  Harrison Brook (Year 6), Eesa Parker (Year 5), Georgia Clarke (Year 5), Archie Tebbutt (Year 4) and Austin Brook (Year 4) had all qualified at the ISA Regional Championships in October to swim for the East Anglian team.  Harrison Brook competed in the Year 6 50m Breastroke, Year 6 50m Butterfly and the Year 6 200m Medley Relay Team (Butterfly).  Eesa Parker competed in the Year 5 50m Backstroke and the Year 5 200m Freestyle Relay Team. Georgia Clarke competed in the Year 5 50m Breaststroke whilst Austin Brook competed in the Year 4 50m Breaststroke.  Archie Tebbutt competed in the Year 4 50m Backstroke, Year 4 50m Freestyle and the Year 4 200m Freestyle Relay Team. The hard working and determined approach by all 5 children certainly paid off and their results can be seen below:

Harrison Brook:        1st in Breaststroke

                                    2nd in Butterfly

                                    2nd in Medley Relay
