Future Champions Meet 17th & 18th July

As previously advised, Swim England East Region is today releasing the consideration times for the Swim England East Region Future Champions Meet. This information is being released prior to the Entry Pack to enable those clubs who need to carry out Level X Time Trials to plan them so that they appear on rankings before the entry closing date of 4th July.

Needless to say, if the Government alters its plans for the relaxation of COVID-19 safety measures, then it may be necessary to limit entries to the meet. As such, these times are to be regarded as consideration times rather than qualifying times, they do not guarantee entry.

The consideration times for the British Swimming Festival of Swimming will also be published this week.

Back to back golds for Jessica-Jane Applegate

Congratulations to Jessica-Jane on her success in securing back to back golds at World Para Swimming European Open Championships in Madeira. Fresh from success in the Women’s S14 200m Freestyle on the opening night, Applegate – who trains under Alex Pinniger at City of Norwich SC – was in even greater control on the way to victory in the S14 100m Backstroke, leading from the first stroke to the wall.
