The London South Junior team swam magnificently at the ISA National finals at the Olympic Park today, 21st January 2018. Out of 26 events we medalled in 19 – 10 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze.
The children from Oakhyrst Grange did not disappoint. Oliver D won for the third year running, the boys 50m Backstroke event. He topped off his medal collection with another gold in the medley relay and was also rewarded with a course record, the boys beat the record by an amazing 6 seconds!
Aspen P matched last years medal haul with another 2 bronzes, she narrowly missed out on a silver this year in the Backstroke. Her other bronze medal was for the girls freestyle relay swimming the anchor leg.
The girls year 5 Freestyle Relay team – Lily-Mae O, Estèe N, Darcey B, Aspen P fought an amazing race and came home with our last medal for the London South junior team, bronze for the girls.
Well done to the whole team, an amazing result.
Thank you to all of the parents and family members who travelled to London and supported the team.
