Bromley swimmers make a big splash

Two members of Bromley Swimming Club, Evelyn Davis and Tamryn Van Selm, have been selected to represent Great Britain at the European Junior Championships in Kazan, Russia, from the 29 June – 8 July 2019. 

Their selection comes after an excellent week of results from all the Bromley SC swimmers who attended the 2019 British Swimming Championships at Tollcross International Pool in Glasgow last week, 16-21 April.

Tamryn was the top Junior (17 years and under) in the 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle and was second place in the Junior 400m freestyle.

Evelyn performed huge personal best times with fantastic results to achieve second place in the Junior 50m and 100m freestyle.

Imogen Meers and Eliza Powell also had great performances putting Bromley SC on the map!

Imogen qualified for all of the backstroke finals and was the second place Junior in the 50m backstroke in a time that makes her 12th junior in Europe.

Eliza made the Junior final and secured a great personal best time in the 100m breaststroke. This is the first British Championships final she has made  and will be looking to work towards making a national team over the next couple of years.

Matthew Rogers qualified for British Champs swimming for Bromley last summer. He competed last week for his university and was in the open final for his favoured event, 200 breaststroke. A fantastic achievement.

It was a remarkable week for the club with the hard work put in by Head Coach, Dave Court, being noted with Rebecca Adlington commenting that the Bromley Swimmers “have got beautiful technique so it’s obviously something they focus on.”

Head Coach, Dave Court commented: “Having the club have its first ever international swimmers is a huge step forwards for us and it’s very satisfying that even though we have had a really successful time over the last few years, that we have been able to be better again.”

Exciting times at Bromley SC with the level of achievement continually being raised.
