British Universities Lifesaving Championships- Day 1
Our team of 12 athletes (plus 3 individual competitors) took to the water, of Bath University Swimming Pool, for the Speeds events today!
With a mixture of individual and team events we saw many different successes and great performances from everyone!
Every athlete achieved a PB in at least one event proving their hard work.
A special mention must go to James Blaby for achieving two British National Records for 100m rescue medley and 200m Super (awaiting confirmation). Another mention to Lea Donovan for smashing her own British University record in 100m rescue.
In the relays, the girls medley relay (Lea, Jess, Libby and Emily) matched the previous British University record and in the newly introduced Pool Lifesaver relay the mixed team (Libby, Sam, James and Lea) set the bar high for the rest of the nation.
In particular, a huge well done goes to the individuals who have competed in events for their first time and a massive thank you to all of our amazing helpers and judges who worked really hard today.
Roll on tomorrow for Day 2!!! @lboroau #Lborolifesaving #Lborowalksonwater
