Getting there

This year’s London Winter Champs were hugely inspiring to us. Even though Madison cannot compete herself at the moment, due to various issues, the fact that some of our club swimmers made it to the podium, gotten national times and overall did very well and swam so inspiringly, is very important.

Because not everybody is 100% well all the time but the team, will always support each other and draw strength from each other.

Please check the Hackney Aquatics Club posts on Twitter and Facebook to see what excellent results were achieved. And do not hesitate to visit the Hackney Aquatics Club website to follow the ongoing successes of our swimmers.

It is very important that your swimmers realise, that it is not always going swimmingly good for everyone and that we all have off-times, but that being part of the team and the will and strength to overcome problems is very inspiring and important for everyone.

Shame to miss the London Region

Is it not doubly annoying when you qualify for a regional championships but then can’t take your place in the lanes?

Worked so hard to get to the Regional Winter champs but unfortunately my shoulders have suffered the worst wear ever.

Well, can hope that all the County times for 2019 will at least come in handy. It will take a while to get back to peak fitness after this long break but never give up.

Nan will be an official and Madison can watch live results here.

Winter champs 2018 (London)

Qualifying times¬†for the London regional winter champs are out and at least Madison qualifies for 3 events so far, that is the 50, 100, 200 back. It’s short-course this year.

I am wondering will they actually swim in the 25 m pool? Last year they swam in the 50 m pool.

The ages are distinguished as 16 and under or 17 and over. Considering Madison is only 14, to qualify for 3 events, is good.,
