The weekend of the 7th and 8th of November saw the South West Regional Short Course Championships held at Millfield Pool in Street, Somerset. As always this is a tough fought competition with lots of individuals from lots of clubs all across the South West of England coming together to compete for Regional titles and to be in with a chance of posting times fast enough to qualify them for the ASA Winter Nationals in December.
One such success story was SwimPath sponsored junior star Alysia Maestri, who is a member of the United Bristol Swimming Club. The 13 year old was one of the original junior select swimmers to be sponsored by SwimPath during the summer months upon her qualification for the Home Nations Championships in August. Her credence has continued to rise and she will now be embarking on her first Winter Nationals trip at Ponds Forge International Pool just before Xmas, in the 50m Backstroke - which she qualified for in a time of 30.54 - and subsequently made her first Winter Regional Final in the process!
A massive congratulations to Alysia - and a great example of the rich breadth of talent, from junior to senior, currently a part of the SwimPath Team!
And we are always on the look out to add new talent to the Team - so if you think you have the ability to achieve, develop, achieve some more and really want to enjoy the ride - why not contact us at SwimPath to find out how to join Alysia and become one of our sponsored athletes!
