Milton Keynes swimmers at Olympic Trials
Three swimmers represented City of Milton Keynes Swim Club at the 2016 British Championships in Glasgow. The meet was attended by the top GB swimmers hoping to qualify for a number of major meets in the summer, in particular the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Max Murphy swam well with a new personal best coming sixth in the Junior 400m Freestyle final. Oliver Lines also swam a personal best and club record 100m Butterfly with a very strong finish. Unfortunately, Tom Flaherty was affected by illness and injury in his preparation. Two CMK members who now train in Loughborough had excellent results. Joss Ulyett came sixth in the 200m Breaststroke final and Charlotte Evans won the Target Tokyo  final gaining selection to the GB squad for European Championships. CMK are very proud of all these results in our best performance at “trials”.
Milton Keynes swimmers at South East England Champs
CMK Swim Club took 25 swimmers to the ASA South East Regional Champs in Portsmouth on Bank Holiday Monday weekend. The meet was for swimmers aged 15 and over. With a new separate finals programme the meet was faster and more exciting than in previous years.
CMK finished seventh in the medal table which is not quite as high as recent years but amassed a large total of medals. There were wins for Max Murphy (200,400 Free), Isobel Jones (100 Back, 800 Free) and Lucy Farmer (50 Fly) with medals for Tom Flaherty, Oli Lines, Marcus Johnson, Helen Odams, Aiyana Lawson, the Men’s 4x100m Free team and the Boy’s 4x200m Free team.
The focus for many was on gaining Summer National qualification. At present CMK may well improve on last years numbers at British Summer Champs, however there are further qualifying competitions in May to go.
Brilliant performances by CMK at ONB County Championships
Swimmers at CMKSC put in fantastic performances at the Oxon & North Bucks County Swimming, held recently across two weekends in Aylesbury. This year saw further development to the programme as everyone adjusts to the new swimming annual calendar.
CMKSC took their largest ever team to the meet with around 70 members competing, including those in partnership programmes. In the overall points trophy CMK were second behind by a very strong City of Oxford SC team but there was progression as we finished 3rd in the junior points, our best showing in some years. Much of this success is credited to the junior and age group coaches and swimmers working in the new structure implemented in 2014. There were as ever some stunning swims in particular Ellie Ward (100m Breaststroke) and Yasmin Dos Santos (100m Fly) had huge Personal Bests. Young swimmers (13&U) making age group finals were: Eamon Bradley, Holly Showler, Abby Murrell, Fern Boyden, Amy Delderfield, Ellie McManus, Edith Patey, Lucy Lennon, Leo Hanss, Tyler Reeve, Jack Edwards, Jayden Hill, Jamie Hanss, Marcus McAuliffe and Josh Press.
The following swimmers won Senior or Junior County Championship titles: Max Murphy, Lucy Farmer, Tom Flaherty, Isobel Jones, Oliver Lines, Aiyana Lawson. Isobel Jones did so setting a new county record of 2.00.11 on the women’s 200m Freestyle. The relays provided a very exciting finale to each day’s session, with CMK winning the men's freestyle and medley relays and the junior girls freestyle relay.
City of Milton Keynes Swimming Club participates in the ASA speed awards. The scheme encourages swimmers to focus on achieving set times so they can purchase the flashes for each stroke. There are four levels Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. This Scheme is open to all Mini stars, Rising stars, Bagcat Development and Bagcat performance swimmers.
These are the times that need to be achieved to purchase these awards. These awards are very good to help motivate the swimmers in competition and training. They also help the swimmers understand the importance of personal best times and encourage them to improve them each time they swim. When the swimmers achieve the times on the strokes below you will need to email Lisa so that she can verify the time and arrange for the delivery of the award to the swimmer. She will use results on the British Rankings to verify the times. The cost of the awards are £2.00 for the large main badge and certificate and £1.00 for the flash of each stroke as they are achieved.
