Southampton Meet Report

BOOM & so the racing begins.......

Last weekend saw the beginning of the seasons open meets at Southampton, and what a weekend it was.

After just 5 weeks training, a large team headed out for some early season racing leaving the coaching team amazed by the results.

Race after race, personal best times were smashed. 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s, 30s, 1m and more were taken and the level of support and encouragement shown by the swimmers to each other only added to the buzz around the team.

This weekend we are racing again in the National Arena League and the County Development Meet. We can take great confidence in to these judging our performance in Southampton.

Milton Keynes Junior League Winners

On Saturday 12th September, Windsor's best young swimmers headed off to Aylesbury to face off 5 very fast swim clubs in the final round of the Milton Keynes Junior League.

The swimmers started the evening as they intended to continue with Rosie Woolger, Emily Miller, Margot Hoogers and Caoimhe McGee seeing off the competition in our first relay, but the 9 year old teams were not going to be outdone, with both the boys and the girls teams ensuring they hammered their competition and bringing home more precious points for us!

Further stand-out swims in the evening included 9 year olds Katie Ford in the 25Fs, Hayam Ukkash in the 25 Brst and Sasha Rycroft in the 25Fly, each showing real promise for the future. James Murphy, Lucy Hopkins, and Eliot Desforges all also put in strong performances bringing home more points for the Windsor team in their individual events.

As we moved on to the final set of relays for the evening, the Windsor swimmers continued to race fast bringing home a further 4 wins for the team, and showcasing their brilliant takeovers! The final event of the evening was the cannon relay; 8 swimmers – all determined to win the most exciting race of the night.

Sasha Rycroft was the first Windsor swimmer in the water, showing some great underwater work and getting us off to a strong start; Hayam Ukkash took over maintaining our position, followed by Lucy Hopkins and Damir Bajohr also putting in solid swims, before handing over Matilda O'Dea who after a brilliant takeover got us back to the front of the pack. James Murphy was up next, building our lead even further before passing onto Tash Holroyd who kept us at the front, and finally Elliot Desforges widened the gap even further ensuring that it was a triumphant finish!

When the points at the end of the evening were announced, no-one was too sure which team had been victorious.

  • In 6th place . . . Hillingdon B
  • 5th . . . Bicester Blue Fins
  • 4th . . . Borough of Harrow
  • 3rd . . . Maxwell

And the final two positions. It was between us and Wycombe . . . and the winners were . . . Windsor!!! With a phenomenal 39 points!

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

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.

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!
