Flitwick Dolphins Swimming Club held their annual Presentation Evening to celebrate the successes of their swimmers during 2022. The evening started off with swimmers receiving awards linked to the Club Championships which were held over several sessions in September and November. Awards were given for the fastest times in each of the races, to swimmers who achieved at least 3 Personal Best times and then to the top 3 swimmers in each of the Age Groups, based on the number of FINA or British Disability points scored over 8 events. The top 3 male and female performers were identified using the FINA points, adjusted for age.

Swimmers were also recognised for achieving various records, ranging from club to European! First time county qualifiers received certificates and a swim cap – there were 9 of these, but it is worth noting that in total over 60 swimmers have qualified to swim at the Counties in January/February which is the largest number in the county coming from one club. Well done to all! There were also 9 swimmers from across the age groups who received a Dolphin Award in recognition of their excellent approach to their swimming. The final award, chosen from 8 nominations, for outstanding achievements, went to Liz Woolner for breaking 2 European records in 50 and 100m Butterfly.

The club is so very proud of all of its swimmers. As we look forward to 2023 we hope that all our swimmers will continue to show their Dolphin spirit, and through their positive approach, showing great determination and never giving up trying, will continue to achieve great things.
