English National Championships 2015

Albert Karavis wins silver in a season's best time at the English National Championships

We're proud to extend our congratulations to all of the boys who swam at the English National Championships in Ponds Forge, Sheffield earlier this August. Albert Karavis, aged 17, put in Season's best times for his 1500m, 400IM and 200 freestyle events resulting in a Silver medal in the 1500m in a time very close to his PB which was an excellent and well deserved result. Albert joined Windsor in the Learn to Swim programme and now swims in the National/Regional Squad.

Albert also swam as part of the boys 4x100 freestyle and 4x200 freestyle relay teams with his team mates, Tom Irwin, Crispin Amani and Cameron Moffat. The 4x200 relay made the final and finished in 9th place overall in a personal best time of 08:08.32.

Harvey Karavis, aged 15, Albert's younger brother, raced in the 100 and 200 backstroke events qualifying for finals in both and achieving Personal Best times of 1:03.30 and 2:17. 81 respectively. Harvey finished up just short of the medals in a very credible and well deserved 9th place for the 200 backstroke and 6th in the 100 backstroke.

Well done to everyone!English National Championships

We're proud to acknowledge the achievement of Rami Elias, aged 17, a Windsor National/Regional swimmer who is having an incredible summer this year!

Rami has come from our Learn to Swim programme right through to National/Regional Squad and was part of the Sudanese team which participated at the 16th FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia from the 31st July to 8th August 2015. Rami competed in the 200m backstroke and the 200m IM and was pleased to achieve his season's best time. In a recent email Rami said "It was an amazing week staying in the athletes' village and being surrounded by the top swimmers from every country. I learnt lots watching all of the best swimmers in the World race in their events and the atmosphere was awesome".

We send Rami and our Head Coach, Giuseppe Caporaso our best wishes as they travel together to Singapore for Rami to again compete for Sudan in the World Junior Swimming Championships from the 20th August to the 2nd September. He will be competing in the 50m, 100m, 200m backstroke and the 200m IM.

BRITISH SUMMER CHAMPIONSHIPS

I would like to both personally and on behalf of Windsor Swimming Club congratulate the two Windsor swimmers who swam this week at this year’s British Championships. Both swimmers, Nimath (Nimo) Ukkash (50m Fly) and Lucinda (Lucy) Campbell (800 Freestyle, 200 Backstroke and 400 IM and Freestyle) swam very well and reached finals in their respective events obtaining personal and season’s best times.  Lucy, who started swimming at Windsor as a 6 year old and has just completed her first year at Loughborough University won a Bronze medal in the 800m 19+ age group.  Nimo joined us from Slough and Eton 5 years ago and is a serious contender to represent Sri Lanka going forward.

For me, as the new Head Coach, it was a pleasure to see these young swimmers accomplish their goals and honour the name of the club...well done both of you!

The event was held over two days and as a club we entered 167 swims, with 130 PB's giving a 78% PB rate, which the coaches were very impressed with. In total the Swimmers came away with 40 Gold, 26 Silver and 20 Bronze medals.

The main point of excitement for the coaches was the massive improvement in race skills.
