CITY of Bradford have a double national champion in Hermione Roe.

The 13-year-old won the 50 metre and 100m breaststroke events at Swim England's National Summer Meet at Ponds Forge, while clubmate Archie Dunne picked up a bronze in the 50m freestyle in what was the club's most successful countrywide event for a decade.

Addingham's Hermione also set five age-group and open club records at the Sheffield venue to the delight of her coach Andy Pearce.

Her winning times were 34.24sec and 1min 13.32sec respectively.

With confidence high, Hermione then demonstrated her speed and piled on the pressure to claim silver medals in the 50m and 100m freestyle events in times of 27.66sec and 1min 00.05sec, both of which were club records.

Her 200m freestyle swim of 2min 11.45sec narrowly missed a medal, placing her fourth, while her 400m time of 4min 45.46sec put her tenth.

In the butterfly events, Hermione was eighth in the 50m and 13th in the 100m.

City's other medallist was 15-year old Archie Dunne, who continued his rich vein of form in the 50m freestyle and butterfly.

It was his personal-best time of 26.98sec in the freestyle that earned him third place, as well as being a club record, while he was fifth in the butterfly.

Emerging talent Sophia Basaraba, of Silsden, also came fifth in a personal best of 2min 27.45sec in the girls' 12-13 years 200m backstroke, setting a new age group and open club record in the process.

Club records in the 17-18 years' age group and open age group went to Sam Naylor in the 400m individual medley and 800m freestyle, where he was sixth in both, while his time of 2min 12.21sec gave him 11th place in the 200m butterfly.

Seventeen-year-old fellow Guiseley resident Sam Wardle swam to a very creditable seventh in the 200m butterfly in a new age group and open record of 2min 10.89sec, while he was also 12th in the 400m individual medley in a personal best of 4min 53.07sec.

Archie Minto, who had previously competed in the 100m butterfly at the British National Summer Championships, was ninth in his age-group 200m butterfly in a personal best of 2min 16.59sec, while he was also 13th in the 200m individual medley.

Cameron Singh Mander, 15, qualified for the 50m breaststroke event, finished 14th in 32.71sec.

Meanwhile, competing in the 13-14 years' age group, Cameron Green showed himself to be a prospect by placing 15th and 16th respectively in the 50m and 100m backstroke.

Three City of Bradford members had previously headed to Ponds Forge for the prestigious British Summer Championships.

Competing in the 13-14 years' age group, Roe was an excellent seventh in a new age group and open club record time of 2min .41.13sec, and she also placed 16th in the 200m individual medley event.

Also qualifying for this meet and gaining top 25 places were Mander in the 15 years' 100m breaststroke in 1min 11.08sec and Minto in the 15 years 100m butterfly in 1min 01.47sec.

Coach Pearce's first national titles bodes well for the future of both the club and Bradford Council's Leisure Services Aquatic Competition Programme.

All of the swimmers train under the guidance of senior coach Pearce and development coach Sarah Fisher.
