A big well done to everyne who competed at the Wycombe and Swindon Meets this weekend.

Six swimmers from Excel Squad, were fortunate enough to be accepted to swim at Wycombe Level 1 Open Meet last weekend with coaches Kim Hill and Jacob Randle-Bissel. Wycombe District Swimming Club hosted the meet in their new 50m pool, marking not only the start of the National Qualification window but the last meet before Olympic Trials. The level of competition was extremely high with spectators enjoying the chance to watch many household names and talented age group swimmers perform in the UKs newest long course facility and with the introduction of backstroke start ledges.

A great race experience and pb's improved by all. Particular congratulations to Marcus Scullion and Pietro Forconi who came away with a significant medal haul.
Marcus Scullion bronze 200 fly, silver 50 back, bronze 400 free, bronze 100 fly, bronze 50 fly.
Pietro Forconi silver 100 back, silver 200 fly, silver 400 free, silver 400 IM, Bronze 200 free, silver 200 back.

The Swindon meet brought some very good results with a 70% pb rate and 36 medals achieved with 10 gold amongst those. Gold medalists were Charlie Talks, Thomas Talks, Iona Morley, Ben Hatfield and Will Richards.

A huge congratulations to Will Richards who achieved his gold hat award with a 100m freestyle time of 59.84. Well done Will!
