Counties Conclude: Over 100 Medals and 200 top 8 Placings

The final day of the 2024 County Championships brought our cumulative total for the 2024 campaign to 61 gold, 25 silver and 20 bronze medals, with over 200 top 8 placings.

Points based on individual times across the whole spectrum of swim events generated the British Age Group Awards given at the conclusion of the championships. Further congratulations are therefore due to Alice and Tommy on winning the Girls 11 years’ and Boys 13 years’ categories, Ruth, 2nd in the 10 year girls with Emily and George both third in the 14 year age group.

Best Day (So Far, Arguably) At Counties

With twenty-four more age group medals and a further nine County Senior or Junior top three placings, Day 5 was arguably our best performance so far in the 2024 championships. Alice Buckingham and Matt Wright both won three more individual events. It was also the time for others to experience Championship competition for the first time as the relays once again saw medals won and lost by the narrowest of margins.
