Bexley Success at the Kent’s
The 2014 Kent County Championship got underway at Crystal Palace this Sunday (16th February) with the 1500m for boys and the 800m for girls.
Following strong swims and PB'S from both Dylan Child and Nick Payne in the 1500m, Bethan Davies swam a PB, going under 10 Minutes, to finish 5th in her age group in the 800m, but leading the way was Tiegan Child with her second National Qualifying Time, some 15 seconds within the required qualifying time and finishing 1st in her age group in a time of 9:47.33. During this race Tiegan’s 400m split was 2 second quicker that her previous NQT! A very well done Tiegan, more to come I’m sure.
A great start to this year’s championships – keep up the hard work everybody!
National Swimming Championships - National Time
Tiegan Child became the first home-grown Bexley Swimmer since 2010 to reach the National Swimming Championships, with a superb swim in the 400m at the Long Course Meeting at Basildon over the weekend.
Swimming an impressive 5+ second PB, Tiegan finished nearly 2 seconds under the qualifying time to finish in 4:49:98.
A very big well done Tiegan, just reward for all that hard training and the first of many National times I’m sure.
