Ely St Mary’s CoE pupil, Maximilian Veiga, has been named ‘Top 11-year-old boy’ at the ASA Cambridgeshire County Swimming Championships.

The title comes after winning nine gold and four silver medals on behalf of the City of Ely Amateur Swimming Club.

It was straight back to work for Maximilian and his team who fought the heavy snowfall to make it to the March Long Course Open Meet at the UEA Sportspark in Norwich.

Ely’s star swimmers jumped to the opportunity to get in some important experience in a 50m long course facility.

Maximilian picked up another two gold, three silver and one bronze medal swimming on Saturday (March 3).
