After a couple of First place finishes at this summer's Nationals, Caitlin Hubbard achieved another first by becoming the first swimmer to progress from City of Birmingham Development to Junior and now to Senior Squad! As the Development Squad only began fully in January Caitlin is the first of what we hope is a long line of swimmers progressing through our programme and excelling like Caitlin along the way! Chloe Finch lead the way with two Golds and freestyle just ahead of Birmingham teammate Isobel Griffiths with two Silver also and freestyle.

City of Birmingham Open, April st The club again put on another highly successful annual Easter Open Meet and had the pleasure of witnessing some excellent performances in the pool including outstanding Club and West Midland records from Brittany Horton and Chloe Finch.
In total there was almost 20 hours of racing and I think the most we were behind time in any one session was 5 minutes. That is a huge credit to everyone. To emphasise the scale of the event, we had swimmers, representing 61 clubs from across the UK and New Zealand, who between them swam over individual swims in heats and 52 finals. In total we awarded over medals. We had over 50 volunteer officials and around 75 members of the new blue-shirted volunteer team.
We have received some wonderful feedback from visiting clubs for which we are extremely grateful. A huge congratulations and thanks go to Pete Winnicott for excelling in his role of Meet co-ordinator. The club's swimmers did a great job producing many Midland Champions. What I do know is that Grace had a brilliant meet and achieved gold in the m freestyle, silver in the m breaststroke and bronze in the m freestyle.
What was impressive came in the final of the m freestyle. Grace made the final in a time of 1min 10secs which was impressive in itself, but Grace then went on to achieve a time of 1min 7secs in the final and a gold medal.
Rosa Day competed in five events on the Saturday. There were two P. Rosa has been swimming well lately and is continuing to improve. How about a m freestyle Rosa?
Jasmine D'Auncey competed in her second open meet, and entered three events. There was a big improvement in the 50m freestyle and tried the m breaststroke for the first time. Jasmine's start, on the breaststroke in particular, was a little slow, which gave the other swimmers a lead which Jasmine couldn't get back. Work on your starts Jasmine. Mia Nicholson, like Rosa, swam events on the Saturday. Mia had five swims and swam three P. The next open meet you go to, try a longer distance.
Rosa is thinking of doing a m freestyle because I have sown the seed in her head. Accompany Rosa and both of you try a m swim, the 9 and 10 year old swimmers tried it without any resistance. Maya Basra had five swims over the weekend and swam a P. The Club Championships is the only time I have seen Maya swim up to this point, so I am not too sure how her times compare. The swims looks good overall but the breaststroke needs a little bit of work on it.
I bet you're looking forward to that, aren't you Maya. See you at tonight's session. Madeline Williams had three swims and three P. All of the swims were of a good standard, so well done Madeline. I know you do other sports and the print on the wall at the girls pool is great, but if you ever enter a talking competition no one would stand a chance.
Natasha Wrigley had, I believe, her first open meet and swam in two events and managed two P. Both swims were of a good standard and you have improved a lot over the last few months Natasha.
Keep training and become a force to be reckoned with. No excuses in the training pool. Were you skiving last night? A little blood that wouldn't stop bleeding, any old excuse only joking, don't have a go at me. Alice Miller had three swims over two days.
Never been known for Alice not to enter more than fifteen to twenty events. Perhaps Alice is getting canny in her 'old' age because the three swims were of a high standard.
Now, on the results page you will see that Alice hasn't any yellow against her times but all three times were equal to a P. Alice perfomed extremely well and achieved gold in the Open m backstroke and silver in the 50m backstroke. Tani Henderson had two swims on the Sunday, in the m individual medley and the 50m butterfly. Both swims were just down on Tani's usual high standard. You can't perform at your peak all of the time Tani. Keep the training up, as you are, and let's see what happens.
Asha Gurung had nine swims in total over the two days of competition. There were seven P. The 50m and m freestyle swims were the only events not to P. Keep up the good work Asha.
Nick Draisey had a good open meet, having four swims and three P. The m backstroke was the swim where Nick was down on his P.
Nick turned miles too close to the wall and knew what he had done before I pointed it out. The best moment came in the m freestyle. Nick made the final with a time of 1. Althaf Bukhari had nine swims, but where do I start. Bitter was having his goggles dislodged on the 50m butterfly. Althaf stopped to try and take the goggles off but failed. Stopped again to take the goggles off successfully. Stopped again to take his hat off. Was given a time of 37 secs, not bad for someone stopping three times in a race.
Bitter was being disqualified in the 50m breaststroke, for going before the gun sounded. Sweet was achieving gold in the m butterfly and the m breaststroke. Sweet was the silver in the m freestyle and sweet was the bronze in the 50m backstroke. Some awesome times achieved too, but will stop there before it goes to Althaf's head.
