THERE were plenty of medals on show for Solihull Swimming Club after the recent Warwickshire County Championship.

Coventry’s 50-metre Olympic pool attracted swimmers from all over the county to take part in what was a series of highly competitive events over three consecutive weekends.

Dan Moore qualified for now fewer than six Open County Championship finals and came away with silver in the 100metre backstroke after missing out on first place by less than a second.

The 18-year-old also won two bronze medals in the 200 and 50 metre backstroke races, while also finishing third in the 100 and 200 metre butterfly events.

Dean Ahmed also impressed after qualifying for seven age group finals. The 12-year-old won gold in the 50 and 100 freestyle finals, while also finishing runner-up in the 200 and 400 metre freestyle and he also took home bronze in the 100 metre backstroke final.

Elizabeth Aston, 13, will be happy with her efforts in the 50 metre breaststroke final after coming second in a personal best time of 38.41.

Catlin Hubbard only took part on the final weekend but the 15-year-old qualifed for all her finals and became County Champion twice over and Junior Champion too.

Caitlin became County Champion for the 50 and 200 metre butterfly category and won gold in her age group final for the 100 metre backstroke which made her Junior Champion and her finishing time meant she also finished second in the Open County Championship.

Elsewhere, Laila Elfandi, 11, took home gold in the 50 and 100 metre backstroke events, while also finishing as runner-up in the 50 metre freestyle race and third in the 10/11-year 200 metre freestyle.

Megan Nicklin, aged 10, also took a medal in the 10/11 200 metre breaststroke race after finishing second which made her the highest placed ten-year-old in the age group event.
