In the 13 year old boys age group Sam Hockin took 4 golds and a silver as his hard work in training continues to pay off. Overall this was great meet for Tigersharks as the swimmers produced a host of best times and the new comers to the sport really showed off their potential. We look forward to seeing their development over the coming years.
A week later Tigersharks took a small group of swimmers to Millfield School to take part in the Taunton and Millfield super series level 1 long course meet. Events opened up on the Friday with the long distance events and Tigersharks had representation in both the m and the m.

In the boys m event Marshall Fitchett put in a strong swim to better his long course best performance and James Andrew was desperately close to breaking 20 minutes as he destroyed his previous best at this event getting his regional qualifying time. Becky Cook, Dina Nejkic and Gabriella Doughty were at the meet to get rankings places for qualification for the Nationals.
Dina was up first in the m breast stroke where she equalled her life time best and then went on to set new best times with some strong swims in the 50m and m events, sailing under 3 minutes long course for the first time.
Gabriella Doughty waited until the final day to compete but stormed her heat to set a new lifetime best of the 50m backstroke and at the time of writing sits at number 10 in the UK rankings for her age group. The performances over the weekend were very encouraging and the swimmers will now turn their attention to the regional competitions where they will test themselves against the best in West of England. We wish them the best of luck and will let you know how they get on. Tigersharks Spring into Action Tigersharks swimmers found themselves in action at 2 different meets in March.
With so many swimmers at both meets it was key for Tigersharks to perform at their best if they wanted to get amongst the medals. Alfie Smithson is also fast improving posting PB times in every race he entered.
Another 5 best performances over the course of the meet made this a very good weekend for Lauren. Sophie Walker smashed her previous best in the 50 Fly and just outside the Regional qualifying time but picked up a consideration with her new lifetime best.
Another swimmer taking a big chunk out of her PB was Lavinia Morsani-Jones as she clocked a RCT in her 50m FC despite having another year in the age group with a sub 32 second clocking.
There were many medals won over the weekend with Tigersharks even recording a 1,2 3 as Charlie Griffiths, Alfie Smithson and Freddie Logan took home all the medals in the boys 9 years m Breaststroke. Overall it was a great weekend of swimming for the club as the swimmers keep on delivering success time after time.
The following weekend a small group of swimmers entered the Rushmoor Royals level 1 open meet looking for an indication of early form in the 50m pool. Dina Nejkic was first up and produced a fantastic m Breaststroke taking 4 seconds off her previous best time taking a bronze medal in her age group. Dina has done really well to get back her fitness after 10 weeks out with a double leg break at the back end of last year. Andrew Smith produced a stunning swim in his m Fly as he also recorded a 10 second long course PB to win his age group despite being one of the youngest swimmers.
Despite a mishap in the marshalling area, which meant he missed his original heat, he also recorded a PB in his m FC and held his nerve in a very fast heat. Coming off the back of a heavy cold she produced an 8 second PB in the m back and a 2 second PB in the m back where she currently heads the rankings.
Over the 2 weekends Tigersharks have really stepped up to the plate. The next meet sees the whole squad come together for a long course meet at Bristol in preparation for the upcoming Regional Championships in May. The club is in a really good position to challenge for medals, deliver best times and hopefully get some National Qualifying times to boot.
Wiltshire Counties Part II — Tigersharks bite back Tigersharks attended the final sessions of the Wiltshire County championships over the last weekend of January and the first weekend of February. Having already started well the club went from strength to strength as our younger swimmers showed us exactly what they can do.
Rushmoor Royals Masters Long Course Open Meet
The senior members of the team were up first as they finished off their county swims with some success. Becky Cook put in a great performance on her IM to win the county title in a regional qualifying time. Laura Edwards was also in good form as she claimed victory in the m Breaststroke. Andrew Smith added junior m Fly title to his m title despite still having 2 years in the age group.
Tigersharks are very strong in the age group competition. Andrew Smith dominated the 13 boys age group winning 10 gold and 2 silver medals as he showed not only great determination but was able to find another gear when it mattered the most to secure a string of victories.
Andrew was also the only swimmer to achieve an Age Group Best Time throughout the whole age group competition as he clocked 1: This should not be underestimated as the records still reflect age on day rather than age in the year so many of them are held by swimmers who would be in an older age group under the current regime. She also showed that her weakest stroke is coming along as she took the IM and IM titles with some determined swimming.
Leia Griffiths and James Andrew took 5 golds a piece in the 12 year old age group with both swimmers putting in some fabulous swims and increasing their tally of regional qualifying times in the process. Leia showed real grit and determination as she battled out her events with Caitlyn Fry from Calne Alpha with honours even over the course of the championships.
Ryan Lawrence also got in on the act as he won gold in the m backstroke and later added a silver in Backstroke. Grace Osman is turning into a fine distance medley swimmer who builds on her strong fly stroke.

The biggest increase was from our female athletes The venue. Very popular again though the facilities operator made no mention of the swimming lessons taking place when I booked - not at all ideal as it severely limited seating on poolside.
I was particularly pleased to see so many supporters up in the spectator gallery, they were entertained by some excellent swimming and none required reprimanding by the referees. Please copy and paste the link into your browser. The initial order is for 10, at least 4 are reserved!
