As you may be aware, there have been some changes to the structure of the county swimming competitions in Sussex.

A new short course (25m pool) championship competition has been introduced this year and will take place at the Pavillions in the Park, Horsham on Sunday 26th October and Sunday 2nd November.

To qualify for this competition, all swimmers must register a time at a licensed open meet that is faster than their age related qualifying time (click here to view qualifying times).  At the present time, swimmers should use is their age as at the 2nd November 2014.

200m Aggregates 2014

Last night saw the completion of the 2014 200m Aggregates and what a fantastic competition it has been this year with 38 swimmers completing all four strokes compared to 21 in the previous year.

Remember that every swimmer who completes the Aggregates will receive a medal of achievement at annual awards evening later in the year and age group winners also receive a trophy.

Congratulations to Jasmine Karim who was the only U10 swimmer to complete all four strokes in an overall time of 19:44.54.  Although Jasmine was the only swimmer to complete the aggregates there were some excellent performances from all the U10 swimmers in the individual strokes, which bodes well for the future.

Jessica Rayner won the U12 Girls category for the second year running in a time of 14:35.93, more than a minute faster than the previous year’s winning time of 15:43.30.

Seb Hadnett also won the U12 Boys category for the second year running in a staggering time of 12:47.74, more than two minutes faster than his previous year’s time of 14:58.43.

Olivia Davies was triumphant in the U14 Girls in a time of 13:27.02, again beating the previous year’s winning time of 14:39.78.

The U14 Boys category was won by Adam Long in a time of 12:38.57, again almost a minute faster than the previous year’s winning time of 13:36.03.

In the U16 categories, Molly Rayner was the fastest girl with a winning time of 12:52.28 and Sam Pink won the boy’s event in an impressive 10:53.44, beating the previous year’s winning time of 11:25.72.

There were no Open swimmers who completed the aggregates but congratulations go to Jane West and Darren Sims who won the Masters categories in winning times of 13:27.57 and 11:13.12 respectively.
