Jess Shaw at 2014 British Nationals

 

 On 9th August Jess Shaw represented Southwold Swimming Club in the British Gas ASA National Youth Championships at the Pond Forge Pool, Sheffield.

 Jess qualified for the Open (all ages) 50m  Backstroke and with over 100 swimmers, out of the 138, with entry times within one second of each other’s the racing was    going to be unbelievably close.  She was seeded 62nd out of the 138 that swam, which put her in heat 8 lane 8 in the spearheaded 10 lane heat.

 A very slight slip with the feet at the start put her between ½ and 1 body length behind the best starters but a strong swim saw her claw this back to finish 3rd in the heat with a new PB of 31.22 and resulted in her finishing  in 45th place.

 Well done and congratulations Jess we are all proud of you.
