The Abbey Swimmers Going from Strength to Strength

19 Mar 18

Abbey swimmers have had a storming start to 2018!

C Hattan, G Phillips, E Carter and M Pommier all qualified to compete in the County Championships, held over three weekends at Crown Pools, Ipswich, through February.

Out of a possible 15 events, C Hattan qualified in 14, including the challenging 200m Individual Medley and 400m Freestyle. G Phillips picked up 12 qualifications and E Carter three. M Pommier had the challenge of swimming up a year, because of when her birthday fell, so had to qualify with and compete against largely Year 7s.

There were some excellent individual results, with both C Hattan and G Phillips making individual finals, but potentially the highlight was the 200m Freestyle Team Relay where an enthusiastically and loudly supported Deben team won a well-deserved bronze medal. C Hattan and G Phillips making up crucial time in the last two legs.

A great result for one of the smaller clubs (that doesn’t even have its own swimming pool at the moment!) On the basis of their performances this year, C Hattan, G Phillips and E Carter have been selected to attend the Suffolk County ASA Development programme, part of the England Swimming performance pathway.
