|Thanet No Frills Open 10th April 2016|
Maximum success at Margate
Faversham swimmers came home with two regional consideration times and three Club Records, not bad for a day out at Margate! The elite swimmers were competing at the Thanet No Frills open held at the Hartsdown Leisure centre, Margate. Max Fordyce was on fine form smashing three club records in boys 11 years 50m Freestyle (32.92 p.b.), 50m Butterfly (36.82 p.b.) and 200m Breaststroke (3.09.44 p.b.). His most impressive swim, in the 200m Breaststroke, shaved 5 seconds off his personal best time and led to an improved Regional consideration time.
Another impressive Regional consideration time was achieved by Nathan Williams in the boys 13 years 50m Breaststroke (39.35 p.b.). First places were taken by Molly Stemp in the girls 15 years 100m Breaststroke and Max Fordyce in the boys 11/12 year 200m Breaststroke. Nathan secured second place in the boys 13 years 50m Breaststroke along with Amy Coupe in the girls 13years 50m Backstroke (36.21 p.b.). Molly Stemp continued her success by coming second in the girls 15 years 50m Breaststroke as did Max Fordyce in the boys 11/12 years 50m Fly.
Gary Fordyce, Faversham’s coach, praised all the swimmers for their “grit and determination during their races.” Other clubs competing at Thanet were the host club Thanet Swim, Ashford, Black Lion, Folkestone, Herne Bay and Hythe.
