Posted on: April 23rd, 2017 by John Donovan


Congratulations to 16yr old Tommy Donovan who competed at this years British Championships which took place at the Ponds Forge International Centre in Sheffield.

Tommy raced in the 50m breaststroke and had a fantastic experience being around the elite of British swimming including Olympic gold medal winner and world record holder Adam Peaty. Tommy just missed his pb but his time of 30.96 placed him in 34th position in the 15-18yr Age Group but only 1.01 sec separated Tommy from the Junior finalists.

Head Coach Wayne Lock was pleased with how Tommy swam on the day and very pleased that he enjoyed the whole experience. Tommy said ” I’ve really enjoyed   competing at the British Champs and want to make sure I get the chance to come back next year by training hard”
