Mount Kelly swimmers followed up a very successful Michaelmas Term with further success at the National Winter Meet in Sheffield last month, placing swimmers in 41 finals, second only to Loughborough University. Particular highlights were our swimmers’ victories in the new Challenge 68 Event – in which they took both first and second place – and our girls’ relay team who achieved three silver medals against some very strong senior programmes.
Congratulations to all of our swimmers, in particular to the following prize winners: Athena Clayson, Alessandro Burdisso, Macy Lawrence, Sam Dailley, Alexander Mason, Ben Harrison, Emily Haimes and Georgina Dennis.
A number of our swimmers have also been selected to represent their country this term. Congratulations to Robert Jones and Sam Dailley, who have been selected to represent England in a range of international competitions, Georgina Dennis who has been asked to swim for Scotland, Ethan Hansen who has been asked to represent Ireland, and Federico Burdisso, whose international career goes from strength to strength as he once again represents Italy in a number of meets.
