FIVE swimmers representing Winsford in the Swim England Winter National Championships at the weekend is a club record.

Amy Kenworthy, Lois Inch, Lewis Turner, Tom Kud, and Ethan Jones contested 10 events for Winsford Swimming Club over three days at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.

All recorded personal bests or got close, with rankings being improved.

Lois Inch won her heat of the girls’ 200m breaststroke in a huge PB of 2:36.94, missing out on the final by two places and positioning her 16th in the under 16s age group and securing a top-three spot out of the 14-year-old competitors.

She was also eighth of all under 14s girls in the 100m breaststroke in a PB 1:14.28, placing her 40th in the under 16s category.

Tom Kud, in his first national championships, achieved a PB of more than two seconds in the 200m butterfly and also went faster than he has before in the 100m individual medley while also achieving a sub-minute time in the 100m fly.

Amy Kenworthy’s 400m freestyle 4:33.33 ranks her 23rd in England for her 15 years old age group.

And she was just outside her previous best in the 800m freestyle.

Ethan Jones recorded his second fastest time ever in the 50m backstroke, only two hundredths shy of his lifetime’s best, and 15-year-old Lewis Turner’s 1500m freestyle was just shy of his PB.
