CITY of Bradford Swimming Club member Hermione Roe produced some outstanding performances in her first National Championship.

The 12-year-old picked up two silver medals and broke two club records in the Swim England National Summer Meet at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.

Competing in the 12-13 years girls' category, she was runner-up in the 50 metres breaststroke in 34.41 seconds, narrowly failing to beat her previous best time, and the 100m breaststroke.

Hermione's time of one minute 16.04sec was only 0.07sec off the gold medal in a highly competitive race but was also a new club record.

Her other club record came in the 200m breaststroke,where she finished fourth in 2min 44.71sec, and she also had top-20 placings in the 200m individual medley, 50m freestyle, 100m and 200m freestyle and 50m and 100m butterfly to complete an excellent week's work.

As this age group covers two years, Hermione is also eligible in the same category next year, which bodes well.

Cameron Singh Mander, 14, narrowly missed a medal in the 13-14 years 50m breaststroke but, like Hermione, finished fourth in a new club record, this time of 33.16sec.

George Wilde smashed the club record in the heat of the 18 years and over 200m backstroke in 2min 10.76sec and went on to finish tenth in the final.

Archie Minto, who had previously competed in the 100m butterfly at the British National Summer Championships, was 13th in his 13-14 years' 200m butterfly and took 16th place in the 50m.

Also gaining valuable experience were 17-year-old Sam Naylor, who was 14th in the 400m individual medley, and 12-year-old Sophia Basaraba, who was 15th in her favoured 200m backstroke.

Three City of Bradford members also headed to Ponds Forge for the previous week's British National Summer Championships.

In the 13-14 years age group, Archie Dunne qualified for the final of the 50m freestyle in 25.63sec.

Finishing ninth in the final, he broke the age-group club record with a time of 25.61. He also finished in the top 20 in the 50m butterfly, gaining valuable experience.

Also gaining top-20 places were Sam Wardle in the 16 years 200m butterfly and Minto in the 13-14 years 100m butterfly in a new club record time of 1min 02.39sec.

The swimmers all train with Bradford Council's Leisure Services Aquatic Competition Programme under the guidance of development coach Sarah Fisher and senior coach Andy Pearce.
