Dolphin’s total gold medal tally surpassed the magic 100 mark following two days of racing at the first block of competition in the Wiltshire County Youth Championships.

Spending most time on the podium collecting silverware was 15 year old Liam Herbert who won an incredible six Junior Championship titles plus one Senior Championship shared with Jon Audis following a dead-heat in the final of the 100m backstroke.  Herbert also broke Age Group and Junior Championship Best Times in the 100m and 200m backstroke, with the time in the shorter event giving him his second National Qualifying Time of the season.

Championship titles also went to Mel Agius (2), Tilly Gray (2), Elizabeth Beckett and Nigel Masters with Junior Championships to Cathal Westman (3) and Megan Jones.

Other Dolphin swimmers across all age groups collected a total of 61 gold, 42 silver and 36 bronze medals throughout the weekend, bring the total gold won across the entire competition so far to 101; more than twice as many as their nearest rival.

The final block of Youth Competition takes place on Saturday 14th March, with the BAGCATs taking the stage the following day.
