Succesful return for Daventry’s Jack Plummer
On the guest list at the 2013 Daventry Dolphins Swimming Club Championships presentations was 10-year old former Dolphin Jack Plummer from New Zealand.
Jack was here on holiday and trained with the Olympic squad for a few sessions. He joined the Dolphins as a six-year old but after just 12 months with us, his family moved to New Zealand.
Even at that tender age, the club recognised he had the potential to be a real talent and we are extremely proud that since the move to New Zealand, his love for the sport of competitive swimming has truly blossomed and he is currently the top 10-year old in New Zealand.
While here in Blighty, he took part in the City of Sheffield Teaspoon sprints meet and the City of Coventry sprints meet where he won every event he entered and was the top 10yrs boy at both events.
Representing his New Zealand home club of TAWA, Jack broke the Wellington regional record with a 30.22 swim in the 50 Free and an 18-year old 50m Breast record with a 39.14 swim.
Before leaving to go back to NZ, Jack was presented with a Dolphins shirt and Olympic squad hat.
