4th July 2013

June 2013: University of East Anglia, Norwich. City of Cambridge Swimming Club had a hugely successful 2 weekends in Norwich at the annual East Region Age group Championships. Cambridge went with a very strong and competitive team looking to improve on results on previous years and compete with some of the best clubs in the Region and Country.

Kate Little (13) won three individual gold medals: 200m Breaststroke, 200m Individual Medley and in the 100m Breaststroke where she also broke the existing Regional record by 3seconds. It wasn’t however her only record breaking performance as she was part of the Girls 14 years and Under, 4 x 100m Medley relay team: Lauren Hall (Backstroke), Kate Little (Breaststroke), Becky Burton (Butterfly) and Emily Taylor (Freestyle) who smashed the Regional record set last year by a whopping 5 seconds. A slight change of line up and the girl’s continued their relay success with a silver medal in the 4 x 800m Freestyle (Kate Little, Millie Emmans, Lauren Hall, Emily Taylor).

Kate’s medal haul continued in the individual races taking silver for 100m Butterfly and bronze for her 100m Freestyle. Millie Emmans (13) triumphed with Gold for the 800m Freestyle and a bronze for her 200m Butterfly.

Harvey Skellern (10) was the top individual for the boys with a gold medal win in the 100m Freestyle and two silvers for the 100m Backstroke and 200m Freestyle.

The boy’s 14yrs 4 x 100m Freestyle relay team (George Laing, Joshua Goncalves, Jake Thomas-Mansfield, Thomas Harrington) put in a stunning silver medal winning performance.

“From a coaches view it is great to see so many swimmers coming away with medals but I was just as impressed with how many of the swimmers stepped up and improved upon their best times when performing under pressure and either coming from outside the top 8 to make finals or from outside a medal position prior to the meet to then achieve a medal”. James Freezer, Head Coach commented, “It also shows how far the age group programme has progressed to see that we were able to take 26 swimmers to Regional Championships with so many achieving finals”.
