IAPS Swimming

Last weekend, the St Michael’s Swim Squad swam to success at the IAPS Swimming Finals held at the London Aquatic Centre's Olympic pool. 

Starting the day off strong was Year 5 pupil Nathan H who came 4th in the initial U10 50m Backstroke race and qualified for the Final. This was a 2 second personal best and an amazing swim. In the Final, Nathan placed 5th in a close finish. Well done, Nathan!

In the afternoon, our Year 8 girls Bronwyn T, Amelia A, Matilda M and Tilly L swam the Medley Relay and Freestyle Relay. They swam brilliantly but knew they had to drop time if they were to have a chance of a medal. The girls came through as a team and ended two very exciting races by winning bronze. 

The girls also swam their individual events and were all fantastic. Bronwyn T came 11th in the 50m Fly, Matilda M came 16th in the 50m Backstroke and Tilly L came 12th in the 50m Freestyle. In a impressive performance and a new personal best, Amelia A secured her place in the 50m Breaststroke Finals and placed an incredible 2nd place in the country, winning National Silver. The day was long but fun and the girls made some wonderful memories. A fantastic way for them to end their time in the St Michael’s Swim Squad!

Congratulations to all of the pupils who competed.
