2015 Midland Youth Championships

This year saw a record number of 16 swimmers set a total of 69 qualifying times for the Midland Youth Championships. At the Champs at Corby it was another record of 13 swimmers who entered and represented Boldmere in 60 events in all.

Congratulations firstly to Midland Youth medallists Ben Campbell and Matt Price who each earned podium finishes. Ben reached three finals the first of which was the 16 Yr 50m Freestyle where he qualified 4th fastest but in setting a new 25.54 PB won bronze. In the 200IM he qualified 8th fastest for the final and again set another PB of 2.19.57 to take bronze. He collected his third bronze in the 100m Freestyle with yet another PB of 55.31.

Matt was competing in his first Youth Champs competing in 6 events and secured himself two silver medals in the 15 Yr age finals of 50m Freestyle and 50m Fly - the latter in a new PB time of 27.39.

Archie Langston, Ellen Ratcliffe (400 Free & 200 Back) and Lauren Wilson (100 Fly) were also taking part in their first Youth Championships with Archie setting PB's in all three of his events - 50 & 100m Free and 100 Backstroke.

Breaststrokers Emily Gordon ( 4 events) and Alex Dolan both reached the 17+ 50m Breaststroke final with Alex placing 4th and Emily 8th. Alex competed in 8 events in total setting a PB in the 100 Fly. Morgan Harlow qualified 7th fastest for the 17+ 200m Fly final improving to 6th in the final and setting PB's in two of her 5 other events, the 50m Free and Fly. Rachel Wilson also competed in both the 50m & 100m Fly.

Paraswimmer Tully Kearney recently categorized to S9 swam a British & European Record in 200m Backstroke in a time of 2.29.87 ( She had 2 QTs which were in able bodied QTs). These were her last Youth Championships as we wish her well for the future for when she goes to Manchester.

Steve Wilson (6 events) and Katie Richardson were taking part in their last championships before heading off to University - they have both swam at the championships every year for the past 9 years, with Steve having won Gold medals (100 free, 200 free and 100 free) at three sucessive Championships between 2011 and 2013. We wish them well in all they do.

Joey Stanger was swimming in his 12th championships swimming in 8 events with no plans on retiring just yet!
