Future Champions Meet & British Swimming Festival of Racing East Region - 2021
Through July and August Dunstable Swimming Club made a splash competing in the Future Champions Meet 2021 and British Swimming Festival of Racing- East Region 2021. These are development events, with the primary purpose of the meets to provide as many swimming clubs as possible with the opportunity to race since the COVID-19 pandemic caused the largest disruption to UK public life since World World Two.
And what an amazing return to competition it was for our local Dunstable Swimming Club, in Basildon, Norwich and London, where several of our members represented DSC – with multiple PB’s for all and a Regional Medalist too!
It is all about clubs taking a significant step in the return to normality and bringing our swimming community back together again.
What a weekend to kick start these events at the Basildon Sporting Village, 24th- 25th July 2021.
With a great attitude from our swimmers as they adapted to new protocol.
Competing for the Blue Hats we had:
Debut swims for all 6 young, competitors – they whipped up a storm in all events, with tough, determined swims resulting in Personal Best Times for all!
On Sunday 1st August 2021 we were represented by Amber Flitton who competed in Norwich at the Bernard Matthew’s Pool.
Amber smashed the 100m FC and got herself a new personal best. What a star, she faced the nerves, without her teammates around her and swam amazingly!
Next we ventured to London’s awesome Aquatic Centre with Jessica Kefford, Jessica Medlicott, Rhianne Carrick and Jenny Davis- these girls are fierce!
On Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th August they competed in numerous events, including 100m Fly, 100m Back Stroke and 200m IM, they gave it their all.
Passion, determination and speed was reflected in PB’s all round.
The icing on the cake for DSC came as Jessica Kefford was awarded Bronze Regional Medalist in the 100m Back Stroke – we are beyond proud!
Every club competing has doubtless faced enormous challenges in returning their swimmers to the pool – and all should be proud of what they have achieved this Summer.
Bring on the New Season…
