2022 National Age Championships Day 5

A massive fifth day of racing with some very eggciting swims on Easter Sunday…

Sara McCarthy won her first ever National Age medal taking Bronze in the 13yrs Girls 50m Butterfly. One in a series of calm and confident performances this week – Sara finished strongly to take Bronze.

Kai Gilbert then stormed home to win Gold in the Boys 14yrs 200m Freestyle.
Hudson Sheehan took 6th in the same race – both boys with significant best times, composure and self belief to compete in the middle of the race – love to see it.

Bianca Rayward took 2nd in the B final of the Girls 14yrs 50m Butterfly and then 6th in the 100m Freestyle.

On a very busy day Kalani Creech was 10th in the Boys 15yrs 50m Butterfly, and 8th in the B final 100m Backstroke, having also made a good improvement in the heats of the 100m Freestyle.

MJ Lowe twice improved his 100m Backstroke best – taking 2nd in the 15yrs Boys B final.

Kalani, MJ, Hudson and Kai then came together for the14-15yrs Boys 4 x 50m Freestyle relay. All four boys stepped up to the challenge with great swims and were definitely filthy to finish fourth only 0.3 away from the medals. They should know, we are very proud of them and fourth in the country is no mean feat!

Special mention to Kalani who was asked to lead off the team and swam another best time!

We are fired up for the final day…
