Medals for students at British and English Swimming Championships 2018
The 2018 British Summer Championships were held in Sheffield from 24th – 29th July 2018. St Clement Danes students Jemima Hall, Jamie Owen and Jamie Irwin participated in the championships, and performed brilliantly, achieving gold, silver and bronze medals in their respective categories!
Year 11 student Jamie Owen achieved a gold medal for the 800 metres freestyle race, and won bronze medals in both the 400 metres freestyle competition and the 200 individual medley category.
Year 12 student Jemima won silver medals for both the 100 and 200 metres freestyle race at the championships. Jemima also swam a crucial last leg of the 4 x 200 metres relay, contributing to Wycombe District Club winning a bronze medal in this event. Jemima's personal best times in the two individual races were club and county Open records and she was ranked 22nd in the UK over both distances for women of all ages.
Year 13 student Jamie Irwin also gave an exceptional performance winning the bronze medal in the 200 metres in the backstroke category.
All three students attend swimming and gym training sessions multiple times a week in preparation for their competitions, and show incredible commitment to their sport. Congratulations to Jamie, Jemima and Jamie on this fantastic success; we wish all three students continuing success for their forthcoming competitions!
