Eight St Ives Swimmers, performed superbly against the best senior competitors of the 6 Counties in the East Region, at the Swim England East Region Winter Championships at Luton pool over the weekend.

Cathy Brown, 28, ( 1.01 for 100 Freestyle, 2.13 for 200 Freestyle)
Amy Coleman, 17 (31 for 50 Butterfly),
Lottie Flynn, 14 (32 for 50 Butterfly),
Tom Davis, 23 (1.02 for 100 Butterfly),
James Quinn 14,
Georgia Spencer, 14,(29 for 50 Freestyle),
Ciara Taylor, 13, (28 for 50 Freestyle, 1.02 for 100 Freestyle) 
Fran Crocker, 18, (31.80 for 50 Backstroke, 1.08 for 100 backstroke, 2.29 for 200 Backstroke). 

The competition has only Senior qualifying times so many of the under 18's, Quinn, Flynn, Spencer and Taylor were competing against adults and all gave sterling performances throughout the weekend in their events, James Quinn swam 2.29 in the 100 Breastroke, 1.06 in the 100 Breastroke and 29.75 in the 50 metre breastroke to take the Silver Medal at 14 years of age and in the process broke the Regional Record set in 2007 by 2012 Olympic Swimmer Roberto Pavoni which stood previously at 30.00. The Junior Mens records are set at 16 years and under so to smash it at 14 years old by a quarter second was a phenomenal feat and he still has 2 years to better this. An outstanding performance by the young National Ranked athlete particularly taking it from such a prolific swimmer as Pavoni which has stood for 11 years is a true testament to his future potential within the sport, he continually rises to the occasion at every event and swim and maximises his performances at every chance, particularly against older swimmers as he is already the Regional Champion in all 3 breastroke events in his own age group .

A great weekend of competition was had by all and against the Regional Clubs with well over 130, St Ives finished 14th in the final Medal table.
