Tom Midmer, year 9, spent two weekends in February competing in the Sussex County Long Course Championships at K2 in Crawley. He qualified for 15 of the 16 events available.  He competed in all four strokes and over distances from 50m to 400m. He achieved twelve 4th-8th place finishes and his first County medal was a bronze in the 50m freestyle. Each race and time are given Fina points (the same as decathlon in athletics), on this point system he came second overall in his 14 years age group.

Added to the above he achieved two automatic qualifying times (50m breast and free) for the South-East Regional Championships in May as well as three 'base' times (100m free, 200m and 400m IM).

Well done Tom.
