North East Regional Championships 2018

Many congratulations to Madison Peveller who has secured a place in the 2018 Swim England National Championships to be held in July/August. This is an incredible achievement as only very few swimmers qualify for these championships. Madison had a fantastic gala, swimming a time in the 200m backstroke which was ranked fast enough to be invited to swim in this national event.

Madison won a bronze medal in this event achieving a personal best time of 2.30.20 in the final. Together with this, Madison also reached 3 other finals in the 100m backstroke, 50m freestyle and 50m backstroke.

Two other swimmers, Thomas Power and Annabel Cooper also took part in these North East Regional Age Group Championships held at the John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds over the weekends of 19/20th and 26/27th May. Thomas raced in the 50m breaststroke and Annabel achieved pbs in the 400m and 800m freestyle and 200m and 400m Individual Medleys. A fantastic gala for all 3 swimmers. Wear Valley Amateur Swimming Club is only a small swimming club when compared with other clubs in the Region but now has a National swimmer.
