Some early results from the past weekend from the TeamBW athletes.
Team BW athletes were in action over the weekend over a multitude of disciplines showing the diversity of the club and its athletes.
At the British Swimming Championships in Ponds Forge Sheffield Harry Stacey hit another PB in the 50m Butterfly with a 25.91 making it two PBs from two swims at the Championships.
At the London Marathon Matt Dowle snuck in under the 3hours mark for the first time in London despite having difficulties later on in the race ( couldnt be because he went out too fast ???!!!)
Alongside the London Marathon was the London Mini Marathon where Bethany Cook finished 3rd in the U13 Girls British Regional Championship event held over the last 5km of the Marathon.
The Kingfisher Aquathon part of the South East Regional Series following on from our own Team BW Aquathon last week once again gave an opportunity for some of the younger athletes to compete.
