It was with great excitement that a group of enthusiastic swimmers met at the London Aquatics Centre for the IAPS National Swimming Finals on Saturday. Lawrence, Alex, Anders, Sebastian, Bobby, Oscar, Dasha and Lizzie had done exceptionally well just to qualify and to be able to compete at this high level. The overall standard of competition was extremely impressive, and it was a fantastic experience for every one of them. The atmosphere was loud and intense and despite the nerves and excitement they all more than held their own.

We were very proud of the way they competed and conducted themselves throughout the event and it was pleasing to see many personal best times. Congratulations to Oscar and Dasha who both managed to get through to the finals of their events.
