Swimming Success in Sheffield

Year Seven swimmer Aimee Monks extended her medal collection last weekend at the Derventio Excel Swimming Long Course Open Meet, held at the International pool at Ponds Forge in Sheffield. The sprint meet was attended by some of the top age group swimmers in the country and competition was fierce. Aimee held her nerve and remained focused winning two silver medals (50m Butterfly and 100m Freestyle) plus the Bronze medal (200m Individual Medley). She narrowly missed out on the Gold medal in 100m Freestyle, only being beaten by two tenths of a second. She also narrowly missed out on further medals having had two very close fourth place finishes in 100m Butterfly and 50m Freestyle.
