Barnet Copthall Swimming Club brought their fine summer form into the new season as three of their youngsters were crowned national champions at the National Age Group and Youth swimming championships.
The club sent their largest ever group of swimmers to the event and there were national honours for Felix Cheng in the 200m butterfly, Freddie Cornwell in the 200m backstroke and Yaron Gerber in the 200m breaststroke.
There were five other medal winning performances at the championships which were capped off with the boys’ medley relay team of Cheng, Cornwell, Gerber and Joe Zlotnick sealing a convincing victory.
Following the club’s impressive results, Cornwell, Zlotnick, Gerber, Thomas Cheng, Felix Cheng, Sofia Godfrey, Gemma Hunter, Megan Byrne and Bradley Stavinec have been selected to attend the England Talent Identification Day later this month.
At the European masters in Eindhoven, Emma Harvey clinched gold in the solo synchronised swimming while Georgie Hamilton ended with silver in the 200m butterfly and bronze in 3km open water.
