Two galas in a couple of weeks saw seven Flyers make a splash in Llanelli and Cardiff.
Alexa, Victoria, Sammy and Zac stormed the Llanelli Open, grabbing 9 medals and a clutch of fresh PBs.
Alexa set the tempo, with a storming swim in the 100m breaststroke to hit the wall in 1:38.38, claiming a well deserved silver medal. The young Flyer also slashed more than 15 seconds off her 200 freestyle (2:54.11) and her 200 IM, touching in 3:20.43.
Victoria left Llanelli with an impressive haul of medals, claiming three bronze and two silver. She took second spot in the 50m breaststroke in a time of 51.75 and also grabbed second in the 100 IM, slicing 1 second off her previous best time to touch in 1:37.29.
Sammy took more than 7 seconds off his 100 freestyle time, setting a fresh high water mark of 1:26.72. He also cut almost 3 seconds off his 100 backstroke, touching in 1:36.48.
Zac bagged three silver medals in 100 breaststroke, 100 fly and 200 IM. He shaved 1 second off his 100 breaststroke to finish in 1:40.02, and nudged his 200 freestyle to a new PB of 2:50.40.
Three Flyers braved the icy weather to fly the flag for the ‘black and orange’ at the Tiger Bay Open last weekend.
Hans secured silver in the 100 fly and came away with a clutch of ‘speeding tickets’ for beating the meet’s upper cut off times. The pick of his swims include a speedy 3:17.00 in the 200m breaststroke and 2:56.13 in the 200 IM, a 49 second advance on his previous best long course time.
Well done to Dafydd and Rhydian for taking to the water in black and orange for their first competition. Dafydd put down a satisfying 1:15.78 in the 100m freestyle, and 1:41.81 in the 100m breaststroke.
Rhydian set some brand new targets, with 1:35.20 in the 100m freestyle and 2:16.47 in the 100m breaststroke.
Thanks to Rob, Lorraine and Fred for taking on poolside duties. It wouldn’t happen without your input.
Well done all. Go Flyers!
