Scottish National Championships

24 Stirling Swimmers travelled to the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh for the Scottish National Swimming Championships.   All the swimmers put in a superb effort and were rewarded by some great swims, brought home many medals, swam some big lifetime best swims,  enjoyed some exciting relay performances, and finished in a fantastic 4th place in the top team competition.  As one of the smaller clubs this is an outstanding achievement.

Individual highlights were

Martin Cremin winning the 1500m freestyle title and racing hard to bring home silver in the 800m freestyle and bronze in the 400m freestyle.

Joseph Welstead taking the silver medal in the 50m breaststroke and bronze in the 100m breaststroke.

Callum Hillicks taking bronze medals in the 100m butterfly and the 50m butterfly.

In the disability events Hope Gordon had a fantastic meet and won silver in the 100m free and 200 IM and bronze in the 50m free and 100m back.

 

Jim Anderson won the multi disability 50m backstroke and posted strong swims in the freestyle events.   Jim was using the event as a preparation meet for the upcoming Paralympic Games in London in September.

 

The swimmers training at Stirling as part of the ITC and SPS squads showed some excellent racing skills and well done in particular to Jak Scott and Lucy Ellis who were racing under the Stirling banner.

Congratulations to all the Stirling Swimmers who raced at the meet.
