Junior swimmers step up to Seniors and medal at Devon Championships
Two of the older club swimmers (Daniel Mather and Chelsea Pincott) moved up to the senior level and won 5 medals between them giving the Crediton team of 5 (including Matt Hockin, Emma Hockin and Darren Beer) 13 medals in total. The outstanding swims of the day belonging to Chelsea who won the 100m Backstroke from a strong field and Daniel PBing in the 100m Freestyle to come second. He also won second in the 100m IM, while Chelsea came third in the Freestyle events.
Matt and Emma had a small disruption to their training prior to this event by getting married (congratulations to them both), followed by a honeymoon and then to top it off – they moved into their own house the day before the gala. Emma nearly broke her toe in the warm up, but this did not deter them from putting down the markers for the forthcoming Nationals in October with Matt winning all three of his swims (50m Fly, 50m and 100m Freestyle) and Emma winning a silver in the 50m Breaststroke. Darren won three of his four races and finished off with a season’s best in the 200m Freestyle.
