Final week­end of the NER Bag­cat Cham­pi­onships sees our gold medal tal­ly double.

The sec­ond week­end of the ASA NER Bag­cat Cham­pi­onships took place at Ponds Forge in Sheffield on the 11th and 12th June 2011.

With the Cham­pi­onships being the last chance for most swim­mers to qual­i­fy for the ASA Nation­al Cham­pi­onships, the com­pe­ti­tion was fierce with many swim­mers try­ing to achieve their qual­i­fy­ing times.

The City of Leeds Swim­ming Club were rep­re­sent­ed by mem­bers of the Nation­al Youth and Age Group squads, Com­pe­ti­tion Cen­tral and the Region­al Youth Squad.

There were some great swims over the week­end with swim­mers from the City of Leeds achiev­ing more Nation­al Qual­i­fy­ing times and Chantel Mad­den achiev­ing her first in the Girls 200m breaststroke.

The City of Leeds Boys and Girls 4 x 100m med­ley relay Teams post­ed com­pet­i­tive times in a bid to gain qual­i­fi­ca­tion for the Nation­al relays. The teams now have to wait for the rest of the results around the coun­try to see if they have qualified.

The Cham­pi­onships fin­ished with the City of Leeds top­ping the medal table with 26 Gold, 31 Sil­ver, and 22 Bronze medals.
