The sec­ond week­end of the NER Age Groups saw many phe­nom­e­nal swims to top off some of the most spec­tac­u­lar rac­ing the club has seen at region­al level. 

The club occu­pied all three podi­um posi­tions on six occa­sions dur­ing their dom­i­na­tion of the weekend’s com­pe­ti­tion. The relay teams also per­formed well; medalling in every event. Over­all, we col­lect­ed almost six times more gold medals than the sec­ond placed team. 

Medal tal­ly (after two weekends)

2013  2012 
Gold  60  35 
Silver  37  22 
Bronze  23  28 

In addi­tion to the 120 medal­lists there were 164 final­ists (plac­ing 4th10th). Our tal­ly of 60 gold medals meant that we won just under half of all of the gold medals (124) that were avail­able over the two weekends. 

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the swim­mers who achieved per­son­al best times, medals and nation­al times. We hope that these results will help to fuel a pos­i­tive approach in the lead up to local and Nation­al Cham­pi­onship events. 

Thank you to the team man­agers who were an amaz­ing sup­port over both week­ends, their con­tri­bu­tion unques­tion­ably helped us achieve the heights we reached.
