Congratulations to Elena Dewhurst who represented Anaconda SC at this years Swim England Winter Nationals up in Sheffield before Christmas where she rubbed shoulders with global medal winners Siobhan-Marie O’Connor, Penny Oleksiak, Taylor Ruck, James Guy and James Wilby to name a few.
Elena started her programme with the 100m freestyle and posted a PB time of 57.17 to qualify for the B Final ( no age groups at these champs) where her final time of 58.44 placed her 9th. Up next for Elena was the 50m freestyle and again our speed queen qualified for the B Final with a heat time of 26.28. In the final Elena smashed her personal best with 25.84 to finish 4th in the race but won the Silver medal for Junior swimmers and had the addded bonus of breaking the Middlesex County and London Region Junior short course record for the 50m freestyle. A great way to end a very successful year and everyone at Anaconda SC is very proud of everything that Elena has achieved this year.
