Lots of meet records fell at the Nike 50 Sprints Meet on Sunday; mostly girls I have to point out, but with Naoki making sure that the boys are not completely left out! Many congratulations to all of the following swimmers:
Congratulations to Madeleine Tichborne who set a new club record during the Age Group time-trials* on Wednesday.
Madeleine Tichborne (10 years)
800 free: 10:25.33
This time is a National Qualifying time for 11 year old girls. Madeleine is still 10 at the time of Nationals this year which emphasises what a very good time this is.
*For information, club records may be set (as in this case) in time trials conducted by Barnet Copthall coaches, provided two independent timekeepers are used. Where they record different times the slower time is taken.
Another reminder for BCSC swimmers and parents about the Barnet Copthall SC presentation evening and disco on 18th February.
There will be dancing, lots of great food, a bar for the over 18s, and the winners of the Club Championships on December 11th will be presented with their trophies.
This year's event will have a Harry Potter theme - one of the 'baddies' from the films will be presenting the awards. We would like as many swimmers as possible (and parents if they wish!) to come in fancy dress as a Harry Potter character. There will be a prize for the best fancy dress.
