Day One - Chesterfield Summer Splash 2012

What a great start to the two day weekend of racing at the Chesterfield Summer Splash 2012! Ilkeston swimmers have been in red hot form racking up MASSIVE personal best times and have achieved medal positions too!

The Males 400m Freestyle event was up first and two Ilkeston squad swimmers were in this race! Kyle Hudson and Ben Saunders!! A 400m Event is a massive achievement and as we all know takes a lot of hard work and energy to get through to the other side! Nevertheless both swimmers gave an absoloutely blinding performance and literally blew their entered times out of the water by many, many seconds!

In the Open Age Group, Kyle came 6th with a very good time of 4:49:01 knocking 19 seconds off his best! Outstanding work - well done!!

In the 14 Years Age Group, Ben came 2nd with a very good time of 4:39:19 knocking 10 seconds off his best! Well done!!

Grace Vivian has pulled some super swims out of the bag on day one posting a 31:83 on the 50 Freestyle with a 9th place and a 4th place in the 50m Back with a good time of 37:64 being posted! Well done Grace!

Kyle was also competing in the 50m Fly coming 15th in a time of 32:28, the 200m IM in a time of 2:40:46 absolutely hammering his current best once again and coming in 9th place, a good race in the 100m Free saw Kyle post a time of 1:03:29 coming in 15th spot and then in the 50m Breast gaining yet another PB and coming 6th in a time of 39:94!

Ben also swam in the 200m Back coming in 4th with a time of 2:25:41, then the 200 IM in a time of 2:25:30 posting a 2nd place, and in the 100m Free posting a time of 59:90 coming in 3rd spot!

Rob Hudson also swimming some good times in 100m Free with a PB and a time of 1:01:88 coming 12th, the 50m Breast gaining a PB and 1st in a time of 34:51 and 50m Fly 30:06 finishing in 8th spot!

9 Personal Bests so far from the squad on Day One!
