Another wonderful Saturday at the London Aquatics Centre saw 15 boys from Years 8-12 competing in the national finals. Nearly 200 schools across the country attend qualifying rounds with the top 30 reaching the final, making it an achievement to have all six teams qualify. Both our intermediate and senior teams, largely consisting of boys that will still be in the same age groups next year and even the following year for our seniors, all improved on their qualifying times and positions with all four events finishing inside the top 20 schools. The junior team continued the medal winning success of last year's silver medal in the medley relay by adding the silver medal in the freestyle relay as well as the medley. All boys were in fine form and many producing lifetime best performances for their teams. So proud of each and every one of the boys, not just for their effort on the day, but the time and dedication they have shown over the years. The future looks great for the swimming boys at DC.
