Record Breaker Mollie!


Some fantastic swimming from Mollie this weekend in the first competition of 2019.

It was an excellent weekend at the pool for Mollie again last weekend. She competed in 8 events, gaining three gold and one silver medal. She also received four speeding tickets which means she was too fast even for the gold medals despite being the fastest swimmer overall in some of those events.

Of particular highlight was swimming in less than 29 secs for the 50m freestyle and less than 30 secs for the 50m butterfly. However, her greatest accolade on Sunday morning was achieving a time of 2:10.37 for the 200m freestyle. This time breaks the club record for the girls under 15 age group – a record which has stood since 1997!

Achieving these excellent times puts Mollie in a great place for the Yorkshire Championships next month and also for the national qualifying window between March and May. If she can match some of these times in that window, she is likely to again achieve national qualification for the main Summer events.
