Year 6 pupil, William Irvine has enjoyed further swimming success recently which has culminated in him being been selected by Swim England for the Lancashire Development Programme.
After three long weekends of swimming competitions, William achieved Gold in both the 200m and 100m breaststroke. He also achieved Silver in the 200m Individual Medley and 50m breaststroke, as well as bronze in the 200m and 100m backstroke.
The official rankings are now available after the completion of the County Championships across the UK, and they make for great reading for William:
– Number 3 in the UK: 100m Backstroke
– Number 3 in the UK: 200m Breaststroke
– Number 4 in the UK: 200M Individual Medley
– Number 5 in the UK: 100m Breaststroke
– Number 6 in the UK: 200m Backstroke
His excellent performances in the pool have seen him selected for the Lancashire Development Programme by Swim England. This will help William reach his maximum potential as a swimmer by attending specialist swimming camps, receiving further coaching and education.
Congratulations William, and good luck from everyone at Merchant Taylors’!
