Hemel's Birthday Open triumph
Sunday, 18 October 2015 21:07
Hemel Hempstead Swimming Club provided two days of thrilling competition this weekend at their 102nd Birthday Open Meet at Hemel SportSpace.  The highlight was provided by Lawrence Palmer from Putteridge SC whose impressive 50m breaststroke swim of 26.85 seconds was the fastest short course time by a British swimmer in 2015, the second fastest in the last 12 months, only bettered by Commonwealth Gold medallist and World Champion Adam Peaty, and the fourth fastest time by a British swimmer ever.  280 swimmers from Amersham, Banbury, Berkhamsted, Bourne End, Chesham, Hatfield, Hemel, Modernians, Putteridge, St Albans and Watford achieved an impressive 774 personal best times from 1,200 swims.  Watford SC won the trophy for best visiting club.  The full results from the event can be found here.  palmer 50 breast at 2015 birthday open

Hemel swimmers best ever result in National Arena League
Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:06
A superb performance by Hemel in the first round of the 2015 National Arena League saw the team set the fastest collective time for the 50 events in the competition since we started keeping records in 1999, beating the previous record set in 2006 by one minute!
On the day we were just touched into joint second place by five points after a seesaw battle with Brompton and Wandsworth which saw all three teams take the lead at different stages of the competition.  There were ten new individual Club records, four relay records and twenty five personal best times, all the more impressive coming only a few weeks after the events had been swum at Club Championships. The girls 13 & under quartet of Izzy Anderton, Eleanor Bevan, Shona McKenna and Georgia Purkis won both the 4 x 50m medley and free relays setting new Club records for both events.  img 1839
The open girls team of Aimee Abrey, Emily Jelfs, Lois Moore and Grace Rayner won the 4 x 50 medley relay and were joined by Kira Doyle and Rebecca Sewell to win the open 6 x 50 free relay, setting a new Club relay record in the process.  Jonny Farrow won the individual 13 & under 100 back and there were 17 other top three finishes.

A busy weekend of competition saw Hemel swimmers in action on either side of London.  Congratulations to Lois Moore who continued her recent stunning form setting new open records in the 100 and 400 free.  Alice Fender broke the age group records for 14 yr old girls 200 and 400 free, and Holly Robinson (9) shaved a fraction from her 50 back age group record.  Leanne Abrey joined Lois and Alice in qualifying for new events for the East Region Winter Championships where we now have 23 qualifiers.  There were gold medals for Max Jelfs, Lois Moore and Holly Robinson, and top three finishes for Aimee Abrey, Leanne Abrey, Tilly Beckwith, Grace Cawley, Alice Fender, Charlotte Hingston, Robert Jennings, Keelin McKenna, Shona McKenna and Paige Wilding.
Club Champs round up
Thursday, 08 October 2015 00:00
Across the first six sessions of the 2015 Club Championships covering the 25m, 50m, 100m and 200m, 400m free and 400m IM events, 1,296 swims generated 652 personal best times including 158 new or improved county championship qualifying times.  No fewer than fifteen Club records were broken; Lois Moore (3 records) and Grace Rayner (2) setting new open records and Holly Robinson (5), Max Jelfs (2), Leanne Abrey (1), Alice Fender (1) and Jerome Charpy (1) all setting new age group records.  If we ran a gold medal table it would have been topped by Jonny Farrow with thirteen first places, closely followed by Lois Emery and Max Jelfs with eleven, and Luke Pestaille and Holly Robinson with ten.  The swimmers with the most improved times were Sam Gaines and Rayne Marsh with fourteen, closely followed by Shona McKenna (13), Lois Emery (12) and and Nathan Whiting (11).  But Club Champs isn't just about the top performers.  Twenty-four swimmers swam in a competition for the first time and 99 swimmers entered 289 events they hadn't swum before gaining invaluable experience that they will now be able to build on.  With just the 800m and 1500m events to go, our thanks to all the officials and volunteers who made it possible to hold the event, and congratulations to everyone who took part.
