Congratulations to our Leeds swimmers!

This season has been one of our most successful seasons for many years.

Great Britain has taken teams to the European Youth Olympic Festival, European Junior Championships and World Youth Championships; Leeds has had a representative on each team and contributed to the medals table in each competition. At the world Youth Championships Sophie Taylor broke the women’s senior 100m Breaststroke record 1.07.36 on the way to winning a silver medal. Leeds’s first senior record since James Hickman.

Domestically we have started to see Leeds swimmer make Senior finals at the British Championships and make the podium. Our youngsters have broken into the Top 25 in the “Open” rankings which is a good sign of the depth coming through the program. Finishing Top Club and Top Girls at National Age Groups with 10 different swimmers medalling and making finals the program is starting to show more depth. The Youth swimmers finished 2nd in the Girls and 5th overall. l Hopefully the next several years we will continue to build with the depth of the youngsters coming through.
