COB had a great weekend of racing yet again with Chrissie, Alex and Ollie competing in Dublin at the Irish Nationals. Chrissie finished off her meet with an impressive 200 breast PB of 2.39.50 finishing up with a bronze medal. Alex and Ollie swam only the last day of the meet in the 50 Free and 50 Back respectively. This was their first time to compete at this meet and was a great experience for both of them. Alex finished up on top of her PB with 28.8 (3rd 13 year old) in a very competitive field of freestyle sprinters. Ollie swam a great PB in the heats of her 50 back to qualify her for the semi-finals, this was a great result and we knew that anything more than that was going to be a bonus! She swam a little slower in the semi-final but managed to make it into the final where we changed her race strategy and she came out with an amazing time of 31.90 placing her 5th in Ireland!
These are exceptional results for there young girls considering this is the biggest competition in the country and is not age grouped. They are all along with their other team-mates looking forward to more fast swimming in the summer.
