ASA Dorset County Distance Championships 2016
Seagulls only sent down two swimmers to the Distance Champs, Miles ? Ward and Bethan O’Hara ?.
Miles in the 1500m, the longest competitive race in swimming had an entry time of 18:14, he managed a 16 second personal best swim, finishing in 17:58.02. Breaking ? the 18 minute barrier, coming ? first in his Age Group by 1 minute and 20 seconds. On top of winning his age group ? also took ? third spot on the Junior Championship podium. Only being beaten by the two winners of the two age groups above. Wicked from Master Ward.
Bethan O’Hara ?, was just a few seconds outside her entry time in the female 800m, she finished in 9:27.78. This swim qualifies Bethan for the South West Regional’s and also earned her ? Bronze in the 17 & over age group. That topped off a good day out for the Seagulls who both came away with top three finishes.
Thanks to Tristan Ward & Janine O’Hara for volunteering to organise the medal table ?. Probably the most important job of the day 🙂
