ISA National Swimming Championships
On Sunday 21st January, Emmeline Grace from UV competed at the I.S.A National Swimming Championships, which were held at the Olympic Pool in London.
To qualify for this event schools who are members of I.S.A took part in a regional competition to select swimmers to represent them at the Nationals. The regions include:
East Anglia (EA)
London North (LN)
London South (LS)
London West (LW)
South West (SW)
Emmeline qualified in the Year 8 Girls Breaststroke, and because of her achieving the quickest breaststroke time in her age group, she was also selected to do the breaststroke leg in the Year 8 Girls Midlands Medley Relay Team.
At the last minute, there was a withdrawal from the Year 8 Girls Freestyle Relay team, which she was then called up for.
On the day, the atmosphere was amazing. All of the races were exciting to watch, with some resulting in 10ths of a second to split the competitors.
Emmeline was absolutely brilliant on the day, winning ALL of her events, and breaking the record in both relays!!
WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT!!!
