    Harbour Club swimmers show off their medals


Harbour Swimming Club are excited about their pool of talented swimmers, who excelled at both last weekend’s Bermuda Validus National Championships and at the Schroders Long Course Age Group Championships at the beginning of this month.

Harbour had a clean sweep in the girls 12 and under high point awards at the Validus. Giada Dudley-Pun was the National Champion in the girls 12 and under category, followed by Josephine Duerden, who placed second, and Myeisha Sharrieff, who was third.

Brandon Adkins captured the high point trophy for the highest ranked individual swim in the boys 12 and under category. Dudley-Pun also produced the highest ranked girls 12 and under individual swim.

The meet saw a number of highlights including Pippa Charleson and Brandon Adkins, who achieved qualification standards for Carfita 2019, while many other Harbour swimmers achieved personal bests and national records.

Dudley-Pun broke the girls 11-12 National Record in the 200 Breast in a time of 2min 58.21sec, breaking her own record of 2:59.98 set while representing Bermuda at the Carifta Aquatics Championships yesterday.

Just two weeks before, at the Schroders, Harbour swimmers also saw tremendous success across all age groups.

Duerden was the 11-12 high point winner, swimming a number of personal bests that brought her to the title, while Arabella Newport-Derbyshire set three national age group records, smashing the girls 400 free mark in a time of 6:47.86. She also establised a National Age Group record in the girls 8 and under 200 Backstroke in 3:27.48 and broke her own record in the girls 100 backstroke in 1:38.65.

Violet Smith broke the girls 8 and under National age group Record in the 50 backstroke record in 43.98.

The Harbour 10 and Under Mixed 4x100 freestyle relay team — consisting of Flora Betts, Nathan Burrill, Brooke Castree and Thomas Cechini — set an age group long-course mark f 5:51.96, while the 10 and under mixed 4x100 medley relay team of Violet Smith, Cechini, Castree and Burrill established an age-group record in 6:55.07.

In the Mixed 11 to 12 4x100 freestyle relay, Jared Moore, Duerden, Charleson and Adkins also broke the national age group record.

Harbour head coach Shona Palmer said: “The swimmers’ commitment to the programme has been highlighted over the last two championship meets, where swimmers have enjoyed many personal bests, set new A, AA and AAA standards as well as national age group records.”
