The end of season Summer Nationals are upon us. Three Watford Swimmers have produced fantastic times to qualify for this years Event.
I Hope you'll join us in wishing Louis Hines, Harrison Lees & Erin O'Meara the best of luck over the next week in their quest for national recognition.
Louis is returning to Ponds Forge after narrowly missing out on a medal in the British Nationals last week.
Go Team Watford!!

Preliminary reports from this last weekend show lots of great swims from our swimmers competing in the three seperate Events.
Firstly our Peanuts A squad, somewhat depleted through injuries, showed great Team Spirit to secure the runners up position in the Finale of this years Event. Standing in 3rd position throughout the evening the Team pulled out all the stops and come the end of the relays, pipped COSTA to second place by a single point. Fantastic atmosphere and great support by the swimmers for their fellow Team mates. Well done to Hatfield for their win and to COSTA, Bishops Stortford, Potters Bar & Harpenden for providing such fantastic competition.
Our B Squad secured an overall 6th place in their first year in Division 2. A great series of swimming and cemented their position at this level. Onwards and upwards next year !!
Erin O'Meara & Ketan Rach swam for Hertfordshire at Norwich on Sunday in the Regional Inter County Championships. Both swam excellently and helped Herts finish 3rd Overall, just 5 points behind 2nd.
Finally we had our first session of Club Champs Sunday Afternoon. This encorporated all 50m Sprints and the 100m IM. Swimmers of all ages competed and some for their very first time. Again we had some fantastic swims and lots of great PB's.
Our special guest swimmer Kelvin Jones competed in the 50m Backstroke. He led out for the first 25m but lack of recent race experience told and he was beaten to the pads for 3rd Place in a time i'm sure he was very pleased with (30.51). Plenty of video analysis will be made available for him to tweak his last 25m and if anyone has a spare pair of Jammers to donate(waist size roughly 34-36inches) for Kelvins next swim, the Club and spectators on mass would be most grateful. ;-)
This wednesday sees the continuation of Club Champs (Session 2) so we will see you there.
