Connie Philips again showed some great talent and excellent racing skills. In 50 butterfly Connie smashed her old personal best time, just missing out on a club record, and moved up to the fourth place in the British ranking.
Molly was the only swimmer from Grantham who decided to swim in the British Championships in Edinburgh. Molly swam only one race and showed great ability to swim well under the considerable stress of the British Championship meet
We needed superb performances in the last day of the County Championships in our quest of defending the title of the Best Swimming Club in Lincolnshire. Still some of our top swimmers could not swim due to illness.
In the first event - 200 free - swimmers could demonstrate how much their fitness had improved since they swam it last time. Joshua Clarke improved by an astonishing 13 seconds – just outside the club record with the second fastest time achieved this year in our County.
Congratulations to all the medalists! After the second weekend of 2018 Counties swimmers won 41 gold medals, 45 silver and 45 bronze. The top three leading swimmers are Iona Colbert, Evie Turner and Molly Colbert.
