Our swimmers performed brilliantly at the IAPS Swimming Finals that took place at the London Aquatics Centre on Saturday 8th June.

We had 6 Chigwell pupils qualify and take part. Our U13s (India, Rosie, Isla and Milly) all improved on their entry times, some pupils by over 3 seconds. The Medley Relay time was astonishing, dropping 5.95 seconds to 1.06.57 and moving from 8th place at entry to 6th place in the final. The Freestyle relay was also highly impressive, dropping from 1.03.63 to 59.20.

India (Backstroke) and Rosie (Breaststroke) qualified through the heat stages and to the final where both girls came 5th. Isla (Freestyle) narrowly missed out on the final, coming 11th.

Our U10s also produced exceptional performances. Cassie (Freestyle) moved from 9th with a time of 35.61 at entry to 33.65 at the heats and down to 5th in the country in the final with a further improved time of 33.59, dropping 2.02 seconds overall, gaining a PB.

Nicholas (Breaststroke) came 2nd in the country, winning a medal, and improving his entry time from 42.46 to 41.62 in the heat and then to 41.21 in the final (dropping 1.25 seconds overall), also gaining a PB.

A huge congratulations to all of our participating pupils!
