On Saturday 2nd of July Ian Murray of our club swam 4 miles in the sea at the British Long Distance Swimming Association Event in Torbay in a time of one hour, 51 minutes and 45 seconds gaining first place in his age category.

Congratulations to Ian on a superb swim.  We have a brilliant Masters Squad who continue to go from success to success.  
 
Good luck to our Regional Open Water Swimmers this coming week-end when they take part in their events  on Sunday .
Saturday 16th April saw the final round of the Chilterns Swimming League Competition. Over the three rounds Flitwick Dolphins swimmers have shown what being dedicated and supportive can do.  Finishing 3rd in the league is the best result for many years and a huge achievement for the club and the swimmers. Not to mention the 42 personal best times set over the three rounds.

Assistant Head Coach, Ronnie Curr, has said how proud she is of each swimmer for achieving such fabulous results, with a special mention to one of the Senior Squad swimmers, Luke Ford, who gained a 4 second personal best in 100m Breaststroke. Also a special mention goes to the coaches’ star relay teams: Boys 14+U Medley, Mens Open Medley: Boys 14+U Freestyle: Girls 14+U Freestyle.

Thank you to the swimmers:  10+Unders: Ruby Blackmore, Jake Hickmott, Connor Sweeney, Lily Moore, Ryhanna Cummins, Francesca Baber, Ruby Ryall, Felix Moon, Adam Thompson and Gabriel Young.

The 12+Unders: Holly Cahill, Finn Hague, Lillia Thompson, Tom Malia, Isaac Moon, Imogen Thompson,Tyler Watson and George Maskell.

14+Unders: Emma Boost, Emily Cullen, Olivia Fowler, Billy Cutler, Kai Borromeo and Samuel Dennis.

Open: Thomas Allen, Claudia Grant Dawson, Philip Cummins, Luke Ford and Chloe Ford.

As ever a huge thank you to our coaching team, the volunteers who make these competitions possible and of course the mums and dads for their continual support of their swimmers and the club as a whole.

A strong squad of 25 Swimmers from Flitwick Dolphins competed at the City of Cambridge Open Meet on the 8th, 9th and 10th April along with 26 other swimming clubs. Competition was fierce, as for some swimmers this was their last chance to gain a qualifying time for the East Region Championships in May.  However the determination of the Flitwick swimmers saw 3 days of fantastic swimming achievements, where an amazing 72 new personal best times were gained, 3 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze medals were won, and a new club record was achieved.

Gold medal winners were: Sophie Fowler (10), Katie Tompkins (15) and Eloisa Miller (10).  Silver medals went to: Katie Tompkins (15), Eloisa Miller (10) and Ben Rayner (13) who also achieved his regional qualifying time.  Bronze medallists were Eloisa Miller (10) and Katie Tompkins (15).

There were fantastic swims and personal best times from the rest of the squad: Ryhanna Cummins (9), Felix Moon (10), Francesca Baber (10), Jake Hickmott (10), Emma Schofield (11), Daniel Miller (11), Maddie Phillips (11), George Maskell (11), Mari Cutler (11), Tyler Watson (12), Autumn Handscombe (12), Imogen Thompson (12), Lillia Thompson (12), Isaac Moon (12), Olivia Fowler (13), Billy Cutler (13), Kiera Williams (13), Adam Schofield (13), Sam Dennis (13), Emma Boost (14) and Phillip Cummins (14).

Also congratulations to Jake Hickmott for gaining a new club record for the 10 year-old boys’ 100m Backstroke.  

Once again there was incredible support from the coaches, Nigel Halford, Judy Thompson and Ian Fowler, as well as the parents and volunteers who make the club so successful.
