CITY OF Bradford Swimming Club's Dalton Clapham showed his potential by picking up three medals at the ASA North East Region Age Group Short Course Championships at Sunderland Aquatic Centre.

The 11-year-old, who is mentored by development coach Sarah Fisher, won the 200 metres freestyle in 2min 22.20sec and picked up bronzes in the 100m and 200m breaststroke events.

Not content with this, Dalton was also a finalist in the 100m freestyle, 200m individual medley and 100m butterfly.

Also swimming as an 11-year old, Adam Mitchell qualified to swim in four events, his highest placing being ninth in the 400m individual medley.

Archie Minto was City's other representative, and he swam a personal best of 1min 23.17sec in the boys' 11 years 100m butterfly.

In the North East Region's Senior and Junior 25-Metre Championships at the same venue, a squad of City's National Potential swimmers, who also train under the guidance of Bradford Aquatics Competition Programme's senior coach Andy Pearce, took part.

With no junior finals, James Lund finished highest in sixth in the 50m breaststroke, and he was also seventh in the 100m breaststroke, eighth in the 400m individual medley and ninth in the 200m backstroke.

His time of 5min 00.64sec in the medley was a personal best by an impressive 12 seconds.
