Results & Meet Reports
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!

Enfield Meet 2015
Last weekend many of our Swimmers headed to the Enfield Open Meet where we had some fantastic and successful swims.
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.

Milton Keynes Junior League
Our Windsor Swimmers did a fantastic job last Saturday and came 3rd overall, after an exceptionally close finish, with just 1 point between Windsor and Chalfont Otters. All the team swam well, with particularly impressive performances from our 9 year olds experiencing their first Junior League.
Thanks go to Suzie Phipott, Siobhan Degregario and Lucy O'Dea for their help on poolside. And well done to Rosie Swidler and Finn Thomas for doing a great job as Team Captains!
Next round is the 4th July, so please keep it free in the diary!

Guildford Meet Report
Last weekend we saw two firsts - the sun made a real appearance for the first time this year and our new Head Coach, Giuseppe Caporaso attended his first meet with Windsor swimmers at the Guilford Level 1 Inaugural Long Course Meet, held at the Surrey Sports Park.
The meet was attended by some very experienced national and regional squad swimmers as well as some of our younger swimmers from county squad. We may have been small in numbers but the results speak for themselves with most of our swimmers gaining PB's and we were well represented in many of the boy's final events. One stand out swim was from Cameron Moffatt swimming an excellent 100 Freestyle to make the rankings for British Nationals
Head Coach, Giuseppe Caporaso commented that despite the older swimmers having trained hard and still feeling the after effects in their muscles from their first week of training with him that their performance was commendable.
With one meet under his belt, Giuseppe is now looking forward to seeing the club perform at meets over the next few weeks in Ealing, Crawley and our own meet in May as well as at Regionals.
