A British record, 31 medals and COSSS top club at British Summer Championships!

COSSS swimmers featured prominently at British Swimming's end of season show piece event at Ponds Forge, winning 31 medals and securing a further 30 finals places which was enough to finish as the top club. In addition, the 17/over women's 4x200 free team broke the British club record in winning gold!


There were many standout performances, with most of our swimmers posting faster times in finals than the heats and often out finishing their closest competitors.
A number of our swimmers won multiple individual medals. Charlie Brown (16) won double gold in the 100 and 200 back and a bronze in the 200 IM, Ellie Faulkner (24) who looked a class apart in the 100, 200 and 400 free and on all of the anchor legs in the relay events, came away with 5 golds. Congratulations too to Reuben Visda (14) and Alice Thickett (15) with typical Teamsteel back-end performances to snatch two medals each. Amy Bell's (17) good form continued, even though she was still in full training to win the 400 IM and a silver in the 200 IM and finished off the week with a bronze in the 100 breast. Last but not least, Luke Howdle (23) swam a big PB to win gold in the 200 fly and also took a silver in the 200 free.
All in all, this was an outstanding performance, especially considering a number of our swimmers were in hard training ahead of international meets in August. Many congratulations and all the coaches involved in preparing our swimmers.
