Charlotte Joyce had 2 amazing weekends of swimming taking part in two very different events. 

The first event took place on 10th of September and was the Fritton Lake Big Swim  open water .  First up was the 5k  in a time of 1.28.18 . The second swim was a 3k which Charlotte completed in 55.29.  The final swim in this triple swim event was the 1500m in a time of 28.32.

This is the first time Charlotte has raced these distances with all different ages both male and female .  Charlotte completed the triple  swim in a time of 2.52.14 coming 8th out of 14  swimmers .  

This is an amazing achievement by Charlotte and the pictures show the Medals that she deservedly won.

The second weekend of the 30.9.17 and 1.10.17 was the  Lowestoft and Oulton Broad open meet . 

Charlotte swam in 5 different events and achieved  gold in the 50 backstroke, silver for the 50 freestyle , in the 50 Breaststoke she won silver as was the case with the 50 fly with bronze for the 100 freestyle. 

Well done to Charlotte for yet another impressive medal haul .

The Flitwick Dolphins Club Championships this year saw another hugely successful event held by our club. Beginning on the 8th September with the Female 400m Individual Medley and Male 1500m Freestyle, it became clear that all of the swimmers’ training leading up to the Championships had paid off. Most exciting however, are always the main weekend sessions held at Flitwick Leisure Centre.

This year, the weekend sessions were held on the 16th-17th September, and 30th September - 1st October. Smiles were seen on everyone’s faces as the 100m freestyle signalled the start of the weekend sessions. The most pleasing aspect of the whole event, is certainly seeing all of the squads interacting and socialising together on poolside. This is an atmosphere that really is central to the overall positivity of The Dolphins’ Championships each year.

Everyone swam incredibly well over all of the events, and a huge congratulations must go to everyone who achieved a new Personal Best, or any medals! Our Championships are a great opportunity to improve times, and therefore hopefully qualify for more of the various open meets throughout the year. Flitwick Dolphins swimmers certainly demonstrated this during the Championships, due to swimmers across all of the squads consistently improving their times.

Finally, on behalf of everyone at the club: a huge well done to anyone who swam competitively for the first time at this year’s Club Championships. Also, thank you to all of the technical and non-technical volunteers who gave up their time to ensure that the Club Championships could go ahead smoothly.

Flitwick Dolphins Club Championships 2017 was yet again an event enjoyed by all, and everyone at the club will certainly be very much looking forward to next year’s.

In January 2018 we will have our presentation evening where awards will be handed out to swimmers following their achievements at club champs. All of the results will soon be on the ASA Swim England rankings and personal database page . Information on how to access that page can be found on the club website under "personal-best times".
