Rebecca Guy competed in great form at the Welsh National Youth Championships. In the 200m freestyle she swam the heats in 2.09.35, comfortably inside the national qualifying time (NQT), and then swam 2.07.71 in the final to win the gold medal. She swam the 400m Individual Medley (IM) for the first time in a 50m pool and was agonisingly close to the NQT, missing it by 7 hundredths of a second where she achieved the silver medal. In the 100m freestyle heats she swam 58.97 to break the championship record but could not quite match this time in the final where she won the gold medal in 59.37 and another NQT. Her final event was the 200m IM where she destroyed the field, to win in 2.25.80; four seconds inside the NQT, and taking another championship record.

The junior boys’ team (Hamish Potokar, James Squire, Dan Cullum, and Alec Fraser) won their category; Hamish and James taking the first and second prizes individually.

The Junior Climbing Team (Daniel Cullum, Olivia Francis, Alec Fraser, Hamish Potokar, Clare Hunter Funnell and James Squire) convincingly won the Bristol Schools Climbing Championships on Monday 25
January. The individual performances were so strong that a super final had to be organised to split the team and award individual rankings. In addition to winning the top roped climbs and circuit events Hamish Potokar won the individual lead climbing competition beating all the senior entries from other schools. James Squire won the bouldering event showing that his success in the current South West Schools League is also well deserved.
