After qualifying at the regional stage, Chloe, Emilia and Beatrice headed to London on Saturday 30th November to compete for the North of England at the annual ISA National Swimming Championships. The competition was held at the iconic London Aquatic Centre, which was the home of the aquatic events during London 2012. They even received good luck tweets from Olympic and World Champion swimmers, Rebecca Adlington OBE and James Guy!!
Competing against girls from across the country, Chloe finished 1st in the Y6 Individual 50m Backstroke, whilst also achieving a silver medal as part of the Y6 Medley relay team. Emilia also achieved two silver medals by swimming Freestyle in the Medley and Freestyle relays. The day was finished off by Beatrice in Y4 teaming up with other girls from the North of England to win a silver medal in the Y4 Freestyle Relay. All of our girls represented BPS with credit and we’re delighted that they all had an opportunity to be on the podium at the Olympic pool. Mrs Hughes was incredibly proud of their achievements and for Bowdon Prep to have been a part of such a prestigious event.
