A fantastic weekend at Nationals – Leah claims another silver medal in 100 breastroke
It was another great weekend for Grantham Swim Club. Leah Roughan qualified for the final with the fourth fastest time, but there were plenty of other swimmers in medal contention, especially as the 100m breastroke was never her favourite event. However in the final, Leah showed some great racing spirit and swam fantastically finishing second with another personal best (2 seconds) and breaking another county record. What an achievement!
William Hawkes also fought well in 100 breastroke, narrowly missing the final, finishing 13th. If William swam the time from Midlands he would be 10th in a final. Lack of experience and probably a bit too much confidence cost William a place in the final. lesson learnt!
On the last day of Nationals Leah swam also 400 IM. Leah finished 21st but second out of all Lincolnshire swimmers. It was just outside her personal best.
Next week it is going to be Haley Milne showing her strength in Youth Nationals!
