Holly 11L – English Winter Swimming Championships

Over the weekend of 3rd-5th December I competed at my first English Winter Swimming Championships at Ponds Forge International swimming pool in Sheffield.  I had qualified for eight events but took the decision to only compete in five. 

The event included returning Olympic swimmers and the fastest swimmers from across England, with my events spread nicely over the three days. We had to leave home really early each day so that I could arrive at the pool in Sheffield for 7:30am to start my warm up. 

I had an excellent, if not slightly nervous, time, achieving PBs in all my races. I got in to two junior (under 16 years) finals (100 and 200 Individual Medleys) which was incredible for my first national championships.

The days were very long, and I was constantly in and out of the water either warming up, competing or cooling down.  However, it was very special, and the excitement of the two finals and hearing your name being called out and it being televised on YouTube were brilliant!

After Christmas, we start all over again with Lincolnshire County Championships, then the East Midlands Championships and my aim to qualify for the British long course Championships in July 2022.  It's going to be a very busy year as I also have my GCSEs!

KS3 Gymnastics

Gymnasts from KS3 have4 been practising since September to produce a routine and a vault as part of a friendly competition with St. George’s. This was a fantastic opportunity for the gymnasts to compete in a scored competition in front of an audience and judges.

Well done to all who took part and represented KSHS.
