What a brilliant weekend it was for Bexley Swimming Club! Not only did we have 18 teams representing BSC at Crystal Palace in the Kent Relay Championships, we had a large number of our younger swimmers competing at Thanet, many of them for the first time. To the parents, a BIG thank you for supporting the events at both venues, a thank you to all our coaches, the volunteers and officials and of course to our swimmers – well done all!
Here are comments from the coaches ……
“An amazing showing this past weekend for the Kent Relays at Crystal Palace to close out what has been a great Kent Championships for Bexley Swimming Club. We had 18 teams competing, 11 finals (+ a further 5 reserve places) and 3 men’s podium finishes: Gold in the Open 100m Medley, Silver in the Open 100m Free and Silver in the 13/14 year old Freestyle. Well done and thank you to everyone involved. Onwards and upwards for the Regionals!”– Sam Minster
“Thank you to all those who travelled to Thanet. The weekend was a great success with 9 Gold, 20 Silver and 10 Bronze medals, plus some hot heats being won by our younger swimmers. We had a number of first time gala entrants at this meet who overcame their nerves and went on to do themselves and Bexley Swimming Club proud. Most importantly we had fun, there were lots of PB’s together with a great team sprit – well done and thank you to everyone who took part. “– Mick Couzens
