The club is so very proud of all its swimmers who swam at the 2022 County Championships. The results were absolutely phenomenal with 30 swimmers achieving at least one medal. The total medal haul, including team events was 171, with 61 Gold, 57 Silver and 53 Bronze. Daniel De Filippo topped the medal table with an amazing 14 gold medals. 8 swimmers between them set 36 new Club Long course records: Alena Smith, Daniel de Filippo, Francesca Baber, Harrison Shaw, Harry Rowson, Jake Hickmott, Max Thomas and Megan Jones. In addition, 4 of our swimmers gained a Top Swim Award: Lily Moxon-Booth – Girls 10 years; Harry Rowson – Boys 11 years; Alena Smith – Girls 11 years; Daniel De Filippo – Boys 13 years.

We also had some great performances in the relays winning more medals than ever before. A mention has to be given to Aaron Evans who only joined the club in November, had never swum in a 50m pool before but was called in to replace a swimmer with Covid with only a few days’ notice. With true Dolphin’s spirit he gave it a go and his team was rewarded with a County Gold! Well done to everyone involved!
