We wish Emily Bell huge success and huge enjoyment as she starts her time at college in the USA. Emily has gone to Northern Michigan University on a swimming scholarship. She finished her Barnet Copthall career on a high note by breaking her own Barnet Copthall club record (open age group) in the 200 fly with a 2:18.58LC swum at the British Summer Champioships in Sheffield. She is missed by her family who no longer have a chauffeur to take the younger Bells to the pool!
The club records have been updated to reflect new best times set at Nationals this year - they can be found on the Competitions page of this website. Congratulations to Yaron Gerber for records set for the 16 years age group in the 50 breast, 200 breast and 200 IM and to Meghan Byrne and Lena Soulas who both broke the 50 freestyle record for their age - 14 years and 16 years respectively.
Note that Barnet Copthall records are kept using age on the date of the swim.
