Ed's note: We'd like to hold this guest blog up as an example of how EASY it is to contribute to our blog! It needs a pic, a few facts (particularly about posh starting blocks, we like a posh starting block) and voila, job done. Email us if you want to share your swimming news.
Now over to our guest blogger:
Take 2000 spectators, 600 competitors, from 350 schools, seven area groups and one small Shark!
Eleanor Partridge represented the Midlands at the Independent Schools National Swimming Finals held on Saturday 24th January, at the London Aquatics Centre ( 2012 Olympic Pool)
They used the competition pool which is 50m long, 3m deep and has ten lanes, The venue is as good as it looked on the TV, with the two score boards, posh blocks and still all clean and sparkly
Eleanor came away with a bronze and silver medal and fantastic memories.
