Over 20 club records were smashed during Weston Swimming Club’s championships.

NINETY-three swimmers competing in 12 championship events generated an electric atmosphere at Hutton Moor as Weston Swimming Club staged its 2013 club championships.

Roared on by a crowd of over 200, swimmers from the premier club in North Somerset all performed superbly, from those competing in their first gala, all the way through the club’s squads to the six national championships swimmers showcasing their huge talent.

Personal best times were recorded in every heat with many swimmers achieving Somerset ASA County Championships qualifying times, while over 20 club record times were smashed over the weekend.

Congratulations go to all the swimmers who participated in the championships and to all those involved in organising/running the event.

On December 14 (2pm), Hutton Moor stages the final round of the National Arena Swimming League – Premier Division (Western), with Weston nicely placed to defy the odds once more and retain Premier Division status.

Weston compete against a large number of huge hub clubs, such as Plymouth Leander, who can call on the likes of Olympic gold medallist Ruta Meilutyte, as well as big city clubs such as City of Cardiff, Swim Swansea and Exeter City Swimming Club.
