Plymouth Leander

The Plymouth Leander Summer Swim Meet, held at Plymouth Life Centre, attracted 16 competitors from Carn Brea and Helston Swimming Club and offers the final event for non-National qualifiers before the summer break. Eight of the swimmers were aged 10 and under as the event gave them their first opportunity to compete in a 50m pool, forging out new personal best times. In addition, the meet has a range of strokes and distances in the programme, allowing swimmers a varied event.



CBHSC Club Champs

14 new club records were created in the 2016 Carn Brea and Helston Club Championships – with nine of these being made by just two swimmers! 13 year old Turaya Evans continued to prove what an exceptional swimmer she is by breaking a club record which has stood for 24 years. Turaya swam 100m freestyle in a time of 1.05:23 to claim the new record and one which is likely to stand for many years to come. Turaya also set a further new records in 100m backstroke (1.07:31), 200IM (2.38:84) and 50m freestyle (30.33seconds – a time which is somewhat short of her personal best time for this event).
