Fantastic Kingston results at the JAGs championships at Tollcross last weekend. Talia Blackley won bronze for 100 back, Max and Guy Pelosi between them won 4 silver medals and a bronze, also several top ten placings for other swimmers.
Kingston came 12th overall out of 26 clubs competing, ahead of some much larger clubs. Apart from the medal winners everyone swam brilliantly, almost all swims were PBs, well done everyone.
Thanks to coaches, timekeepers and team managers especially Bob Blackley who was there for the whole weekend!
Kingston results are attached, note that some races had preliminary rounds and finals (P and F), some races just had finals (F). The full results are on the Scotswimwest website.
Well done to all 25 Kingston swimmers who attended for 200m Long Course Time Trials on Sunday at Tollcross. Lots of excellent swims, and a big thanks to parents who came to act as coaches, timekeepers and starter. Great Kingston team effort! We had enough swimmers to cover the cost of the pool hire, too.
Please note that times taken in a 50m pool (Long Course – LC) cannot be directly compared to 25m pool times (short course – SC). The computer can automatically convert from one to the other.
Results are attached in 2 formats, first the long course times with LC improvement if any, and secondly improvement calculated against previous short course times. As most swimmers did not have previous 200m times recorded in a long course pool, to look at PBs its best to look at the converted times where todays times are converted to 25m pool times and then compared to previous 25m pool times.
No PB is recorded however if a swimmer did not have a previous time for that stroke and distance.
I hope that makes sense!
the Kingston results from WD SAGs on 27/28 October, for swimmers age 14 and upwards
Clyde Coast Winter Championship – team event at the Citadel, Ayr on 6 Oct 2018.
City of Glasgow were overall winners, Kingston came 7th out of 11 clubs, ahead of the following clubs, probably Kingstons best result ever in this event.
