Bronze medal for Finn at English Nationals
Congratulations to Finn Nicholl who came 3rd in the 100m freestyle at the Swim England Summer championships at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
Finn competed in the 100&200 free from times he achieved in May at Manchester and Sheffield. Although these personal bests were recorded just over 2 months ago, he showed significant improvements.
Beginning the day 12th, he managed to finish 7th in the final after 2 personal best swims to achieve his first winter national qualifying time of 2:00.92. 2.91 seconds faster than he began the day.
In the 100m he did a strong heat swim to place 2nd into the final. And, whilst doing the same as in the 200, pb'd in both races and achieved the winter national qualifying time with a 55.18. This was a 1.46 second PB from the start of the day.
Finishing 3rd despite improving his time, we are all immensely proud of Finn who achieved a first national medal for Apex in many years and at his first championships.
