Swim Wales East at the County Team Champs
It was mission accomplished for Swim Wales East at last year’s County Team Champs as they maintained their top flight status after promotion in 2015.
Scarlet Major was the Welsh region’s only race winner last time out, taking the 12/13 Yrs 100m Freestyle by nearly a second. City of Cardiff’s Kyle Booth wasn’t far off maximum points in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Breast, finishing second to Scotland East’s Archie Goodburn.
Booth moves into the 16/17 Yrs age group this year, having competed for Team GB at the European Youth Olympic Festival in July.
Booth is joined by a number of British Summer Champs medallists with Swim Wales East looking more than capable of breaching the top 10 of Division One.
Cardiff’s Kameron Clarke will be one of the Welsh region’s big hopes in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Freestyle, having won the British Summer Champs 15 Yrs 100m Free title in Ponds Forge earlier this year.
Connahs Quay swimmer Elena Morgan also reached this year’s Summer Champs 100m Freestyle podium, winning bronze, and could outswim her ranking in the 14/15 Yrs event.
City of Cardiff’s Ioan Evans is the fourth fastest entry for the 14/15 Yrs 100m Back, having won the 15 Yrs 200m Backstroke title in Sheffield earlier this year while Bridgend County Swim Squad’s Rebecca Sutton won 200m IM silver at the Summer Champs.
City of Newport’s Megan Allison also won silver in Sheffield this summer, touching second in the 15 Yrs 200m Fly, while Cardiff’s Rebecca De Torres picked up 100m Fly silver and 50m Fly bronze.
Finally, Ruthin swimmer Rhodri Williams reached the podium across all three breaststroke distances at the British Summer Champs, winning the 200m Breast crown as well as picking up bronzes over 50m and 100m.
