The weekend of 30th November and December 1st saw around 30 club swimmers compete in the Peter Bull Open Meet at Waterlooville Leisure Centre. Great results for all swimmers involved saw Nomads repeat their success of 2009 by coming home with the Top Club Trophy. For attending coaches Julie and Ken this was a wonderful weekend as they were both at the first triumph as well. This was also a repeat for Sam Cooper who was 10 years old in 2009 and this year won the top 14 year old boy award.
All swimmers swam well and noticeably put in extra effort when they realised we were in with a chance of the Top Club Award, the cheers from parents and swimmers alike must have been heard in Fareham when it was announced we had won. The award is based on points achieved by swimmers finishing in the first 8 positions in each event. We had a total of 29 swimmers gaining point towards the trophy, a real team effort from all involved.
There were also awards for individual swimmers as the meet uses Bagcats where points are awarded for the best times from 4 different events. Again club swimmers were exceptionally successful with a total of 26 swimmers finishing in the top 15 in their age groups.
A special mention should go to Sam Cooper and Daniel Ross who were competing in the last race of the weekend, the 50 metre freestyle. From the start they were neck and neck in first and second place powering to an exciting finish with Sam winning and Dan second by less than a quarter of a second. For both swimmers it was their first individual time below 30 seconds, a great way to end the meet.
As well as being successful the meet was also good fun with great team spirit and a lot of support for each other with cheering for competing swimmers and help from the older swimmers looking after the younger members.
