The Final Day of this years Regional Championships saw another 12 Watford Swimmers swim against the Elite of the East Region. Erin O'Meara, Eleanor Williams, Alex Williams, Ben Green, Ketan Rach, Issy Williamson, Jess Williamson, Daniel Ord, Fiona Holmes, Devesh Kapoor, Harriet Clements and Nathanial Olayomi raced in the 100m Butterfly, 50m Breast, 50m Back and the 200m Freestyle.

Ben Green, after Pb'ing in 6 of his 7 previous races finally got his rewards with two Final Places in both the 50m Back & Breast. Going into the Backstroke final in 7th place with another great PB he shaved a further .35 sec off (34.33) to secure a 5th place Finish. He also recorded another PB in his Breast stroke Heat to reach the final, coming home in 8th position in a very tight final.

Devesh Kapoor carried on his fabulous 1st Regional Meet qualifying for the 100m Fly Final in a time of 1:08.18, This gave him a 4th Place start which he held onto in the Final but with an improved time of 1:07.96. 

Erin O'Meara and Eleanor Williams both qualified for the 50m Breast Final, Erin in 5th and Eleanor in 6th, both with great PB's. Erin went on to cut her time by a further .3 sec to secure her 5th place and only 0.2 sec of a Bronze medal position. Eleanor who swam a fantastic PB in the heat of 37.38 sec swam near on the same time in the final (37.40) to Finish in a very creditable 7th Position.


Over the Whole Meet Watford Swimmers produced some scintillating racing and you all should be very proud of yourselves for both your swims and how you conducted yourselves poolside. You are all a credit to the Club. Give yourselves a massive Pat on the back and a big round of applause!

The Stats (not compiled by Tracy--Thank God) ;-)

15 WSC swimmers swam over the three days, 7 of these reached Finals, competing in 16 Races. Erin was the Star of the Club reaching 5 Finals and secured a Gold and Silver Medal. Devesh gets the title of "Rookie of the Year". His First Regionals and he competed in 4 Finals and won a great Silver Medal in the 200 Fly with a Massive PB in the Final. (I do believe he had a growth spurt inbetween the Heats and the Final itself--because, boy...he has grown !!) Ketan and Ben both made Two Finals and both showed grit and determination to hold their own amongst the best in the Region. Eleanor, Izzy and Jess all made one Final which is a Fantastic achievement... WELL DONE TO YOU ALL.

A Quick mention for Nathanial Olayomi and Lewis Shayler. Both should of swam at Regionals but both were injured. Nathanial managed two swims but Lewis wasn't able to make it at all. You were both missed by one and all. You both have plenty of Regional to look forward to in the future so we hope youre injuries heal soon and that you are  back in full training soon. ;-)

Onwards and Upwards to our next meet--The Terry Davies Alternative National Meet in June. See You All There!!
