City of Ely Swimming Club swam to success over the weekend of November 18/19 scooping up an impressive 120 medals across a team of 34 at the Cambridgeshire County Development Meet in Newmarket.

And, 14-year-old Jake Dunham had a fantastic weekend securing six golds and seven silvers, with 10-year-old Lyra Schultz top of the game for the girls winning four golds, two silvers and four bronzes.

Going for gold was high on Annabelle Smith and Mark Hipkins agenda for the weekend too.

Three swimmers also qualified for the Skins event winning cash prizes, the aim of this event is the fastest six swimmers draw from a hat the stroke they will race and it’s a battle until the last person is standing.

Erin-Mae Carey, Jake Dunham and Mark Hipkin all qualified with Mark staying in until the end finishing an impressive second place.

A small team of swimmers too fast to compete at County Development didn’t miss out on the action and travelled to Luton for the Putteridge Open Meet. Six swimmers battled for personal best times and medals winning 38 between them.
