CMK Swim club took a large team of swimmers to the South East Region Championships held in Crawley and Guildford over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
Ben Flaherty won both the men’s 200m and 400m individual medley events, while Jocelyn Ulyett won four events – three in new county record times.
Charlotte Evans set new county records in all three backstroke events, winning the 200m, and there were also medals for Tom Flaherty (2), Isobel Jones (3), Emma Joyce (2), Tash Pike (1) and Christian Revell (1).
Finalists were Chris Lock, Rory Dougall, Courtney Dos Santos, Emily Jones, Rebecca Marshall and Eden Turin.
Lucy Chenery had a consistent weekend with five gold medals in multi-disability events. Lucy has just returned from the British International Disability Championships in Sheffield where she picked up four finals.
The Regional Champs provide the qualification for relay teams to get into the National Champs. This means these are often the most exciting races of the meet and CMK excelled, winning the first relay, the women’s medley team, in a tight finish,
The B team also look to have made qualification for the Nationals, with places yet to be officially confirmed.
In the 4x100m and 4x200m women’s freestyle, the CMK A team finished second and should be joined by the 4x100m B team at the Nationals.
In the men’s relays, CMK finished third in both the 4x200m and the medley team. The 4x100m freestyle team also should make qualification, meaning a total of eight teams qualified in six events are projected.
