Bexley take The Black Lion Gala by Storm.
On the first day, Saturday 3rd May, we saw some very strong swims. The weekend started off with the boys smashing the 100m IM, with all swimmers achieving PBs. An impressive PB achieved by Sam Woolfenden shaving off 6 seconds from 1:20:68 to 1:14:68. This was followed by the 200m Butterfly in which Niamh Martin was able to achieve a PB of 8 seconds.
Another outstanding event on the Saturday was the girls 50m backstroke, again with all swimmers achieving new PBs, with Zoe Luhmann having the fastest time for Bexley with 35.36 seconds.
We were able to finish the day as strong as it had begun with even more PBs from the boys in 50m breaststroke and girls 200 IM, leaving everyone on a high ready to take on the next day of races.
On the second day, Sunday 4th May, we started off with the girls 200 IM and the boys 200m Breaststroke with Jessica Owen grabbing herself a Gold medal with a time of 1:15:97 for the 12 year olds and David Langley getting a well earned Silver medal with a time of 3:54:37 (7 seconds PB) for the 9 year olds. Another smashing start.
We witnessed even more phenomenal swims from various swimmers throughout the day; two of which were Brett Baker and Thomas Hellewell in their 100m freestyle, both achieving PBs of 1:12:25 for Brett and 1:00:25 for Thomas. Very well done.
Another well deserved regional time was attained by Honor Woods, again in 100m freestyle where she gained a time of 1:07:12, proving yet again hard work does pay off, extremely well done.
Overall the whole weekend was a blinding success, with swimmers winning medals left right and centre.
Great effort everyone!
