YOUTH swimmer Matt Winnell had a successful East Region Youth Championships in Luton over Bank Holiday weekend.
The dual registered Thurrock Swimming Club youngster had a winning weekend by securing his first National qualifying time of the season in the 200 backstroke (2.11.93).
The PB and long course qualifying time gives Matt the opportunity to race at the Youth National Championships to be held in the Summer at the International Pool, Ponds Forge in Sheffield. There he will rub shoulders with other Youth swimmers from all over the country.
To further make his weekend a “win win for Winnell”, he picked up podium places and Bronze medals in both the 200 fly and 400 IM. So all in all a good weekend.
