THE BOROUGH OF HARROW SWIMMING CLUB REPRESENTED ACROSS THE COUNTRY THIS WEEKEND!
A very busy for many of our swimmers and coaches this weekend, which has seen many swimmers represented up and down the country at a very high level. Well done to all that swam and great way to finish the year!
Swim England Winter National Championships - Sheffield
Hazel Macgonigal (Performance Squad) qualified for and represented Harrow SC at the Swim England Short Course National Championships in Sheffield. It is a fine achievement from any swimmer to qualify for this prestigious event, but even more so for a junior swimmer that is one of the youngest to attend the Championships. The event was full of Team GB Olympians and English Commonwealth Games athletes all in fine form breaking British Records!
The highlight for Harrow SC was Hazel in the 50m backstroke event. Her heat time 30.37 earned her 15th as a junior in the UK.
Hillingdon SC Winter Open Meet
This weekend also saw a further 18 Harrow SC swimmers racing their hearts out and in style at the Hillingdon SC Winter Open Meet, and boy did they step up to race fast! As a club it saw them manage to also achieve an incredible 55% new personal best times (even after all the fantastic racing at our very own Christmas Cracker gala), 1 Gold medal, 3 Silver medals & 8 bronze medals!
