Winter Championships December 2012Full results from the 2012 Winter Championships can be found here. The girls and boys ‘Skins’ event were held at the end of the 100m Dolphins championships on Saturday 8 December.
The top five boys and the top five girls from the earlier 100m freestyle event battled it out for the Shepherd and Baker trophies (not to mention tokens for the swim shop).
This year the five boys were: Cameron Brown, Josh Fowles, Josh Bibby, Callum Marley and Josh Downes.
Josh Downes and Callum went out in the first 2 rounds leaving the 2 Joshs and Cameron to battle out for places in the final. Josh Bibby narrowly missed out leaving Josh Fowles and Cameron to contest the final. Somewhat against the form book Cameron, who qualified with the second slowest time of the competitors came through to win.
The girls’ event was contested between Connie Slater, Annie Fynn, Lauren Colton Emily Easton and Micky Gore. This event went with form until the semi-final where Emily just got ahead of Lauren to contest the final with Micky. This also went to form with Micky taking the skins title for the third time in a row.
James Gibson Gala 17th November 2012Thank you to everybody who came along to a packed South Woodham Ferrers Pool to witness our 8th success in this event in its 10 year history.
The A Team was obviously the stronger of our two teams, but we’d organised it that way to give us the best possible chance of retaining the trophy. We certainly weren’t disappointed, with no less than 23 first places and twenty 2nd places, from the 49 races... the number of PBs is still being worked out but we know there were quite a few. A fantastic result by any measure.
Our B Team had a number of swimmers who were competing as a Dolphin for the first time and a number who had only swum in 1 or 2 events before. Although there were a few nerves, there was definitely no disappointment with everyone swimming exceptionally well and actually beating other established teams on no less than 18 occasions, including our own A Team in 3 races !!
They also managed to go the whole evening without a disqualification – something the A team couldn’t do ! That’s absolutely brilliant !
