Miles Farrington (11) was in great shape as he produced a wonderful swim to take Gold and his Team Mate Luke Morgan replicated this as he took gold in the 12 year age group. Sean Purvis was not happy with his performance but he was a clear and easy winner of the 15 year age group and also the Junior Championship. Sean also [laced 2nd overall in the Senior Championship. Ben Edwards also put in a great swim to take Bronze in the 16 year age group. Tigersharks certainly turned the results around from last year with outstanding performances.
Meanwhile at the Wiltshire County Sprint event another Tigershark swimmer was also blistering a path to success. 9 year old Amelia Skittrall powered her way to 2 silver and 1 bronze medal in her first ever Wiltshire Competition.
