The East Midland Regional Championships took place over two separate schedules: Corby and Sheffield.  This page reports on the results from both schedules.

Summary

The results speak for themselves – all of our swimmers this year have been focussed, have worked hard and are a great credit to their swimming club.  In particular, despite our club having to use temporary venues during a 5 month closure of our main training facility (Eckington Swimming Pool) our swimmers have still delivered excellent results which any swimming club should be proud of.

10 swimmers earned the opportunity to swim at the East Midland Regional Championships.  The names of these swimmers are shown below.

Highlights:

  • 29 swims
  • 10 finals
  • 2 gold medals
  • 1 silver medal
  • 1 bronze medal

Looking back at 2016, only 4 swimmers were eligible to take part in 10 swims with one swimmer getting to the 2016 final – with no medals won in 2016.  This year’s 2017 participation has been amazing in comparison.
