BICESTER Blue Fins excelled again with personal bests and county times at a development meet in Milton Keynes.

Fresh from their second place in the third round of the Milton Keynes & District Junior League in Oxford, the north Oxfordshire club impressed once more.

The 24-strong team, aged from nine to 13, recorded more than 90 personal bests between them, while the girls qualified for 13 county times.

Grace Bradney was one of those to achieve two Oxfordshire marks, excelling in the 12-year-old 100m and 200m backstroke events.

Charlotte Kemp followed suit, setting a county time in the 50m breaststroke.

But it was their clubmate Georgia Usher, a new member of Blue Fins’ performance squad, who impressed the most.

She achieved four county accepted times in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke events, as well as the 200m backstroke.

Harriet Gower recorded an impressive personal best in the 200m individual medley.

In the 11-year-old category, Yasmin Preston knocked six seconds off her previous fastest time in the 50m breaststroke.

Olivia Sheldrake just missed out on a county time, when swimming brilliantly in the 50m breaststroke.

In the boys event, Joshua Best smashed his previous best in seven of his 13-year-old races, as did Tim Walker in the the age 12 category.

William Jones achieved seven 11-year-old new marks, including knocking off 14 seconds in the 100m freestyle, with Harry Maggs pulling six faster times out of the bag.

Matt Littlejohn produced a fine performance in the tenyear-old 200m freestyle, recording a 23-second personal best.

Fins head coach Craig Oliver said: “This was a busy open meet for the development swimmers and I’m so proud that the 24 who entered this meet managed to achieve an incredible 99 personal bests.”
