Inspire Luton Sports Village
January and February saw the return of Bedfordshire County Championship after 2021 was cancelled due to the pandemic. Dunstable's small but mighty team was plagued with Covid but soldiered on. After the impact of Covid-19 and the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus Pandemic the BCC event has been unable to run for the last two years – for many of our swimmers this was their debut at Counties. Unfortunately this years event went ahead without spectators but that didn’t deter our swimmers, they swam to an incredibly high standard.
We got off to a great start with our only long distance swimmer Davis (J) taking silver in both the 1500m and 800m freestyle. Lots more medals followed Medlicott (J) taking silver in the 15 years old 100m backstroke, King gold and Kefford bronze in the 18 years and over 100m backstroke. Brazel-Hawkins (N) took bronze in 10/11year age group for 50m breaststroke along with Bradshaw taking silver in the 15 years age group. Mathias took bronze in the 15 year old 100m butterfly, along with King taking silver in the 18 and over. Medlicott (J) in the 200m IM took gold.
The 14/15 200m medley relay team Mathias, Davis, Medlicott and Popow took bronze and the senior girls Collins, Grice, King and Carrick a silver.
Davis (J) took another gold in 200m butterfly along with a silver in 400m freestyle.
Another bronze medal to the senior girls 400m medley relay team King, Grice, Davis (M) and Kefford. Wow, this was just weekend one.....
