After missing out on semi-final places in the 100 back and 200 back because of the rule stating that only 2 swimmers of any country could qualify, Charlie Boldison qualified for the semi-final of the 50 back at the European Juniors. In the semis, Charlie swam a PB of 26.93 which unfortunately was a finger tip short of qualification for the final - but a great meet in which to swim a personal best.
Barnet Copthall's Charlie Boldison has left for Helsinki where he will be competing for the GB team at the European Junior Championships. He is the latest in a long list of international swimmers from Barnet Copthall. Charlie was picked for the 200 backstroke but it seems from the programme of events that he may also be swimming the 50 back and 100 back.
