Holly Hibbott wins Gold with team GB at the Baku European Games

25 June 2015 in Swimming Competition Info

holly-hibbott Lancashire Association would like to congratulate Southport’s Holly Hibbott on her fantastic achievement winning gold in the 800m Freestyle.

Holly Hibbott stormed to 800m freestyle gold after a nail-biting final at the Baku 2015 European Games. The 15-year-old kept pace with the rest of the field for much of the race before pulling clear in the final 100m. She held off Russia’s Anastasiia Kirpichnikova in the final few metres to win gold in 8:39.02.

Holly said: “I didn’t really expect to win gold but I was hoping that I could do it. I’ve got world juniors at the end of August so I’ll go out there and see what I can do and then look ahead to 2020 but for now it would be nice to add more medals here in Baku”

Warm Up Schedule Liverpool

Important Notice for Spectators 

We would ask spectators to read the following notice concerning the facilities at Liverpool and Manchester

Spectator Notice County Champs

The draft programmes for each session are published below, together with the estimated session times

This year was always going to be something of an experiment, having dropped almost 2 age groups and moved the age date to 31 December.

As you will see the sessions are going to be busy, but still compliant with licensing guidelines.  We felt it unfair to consider rejecting swimmers to reduce the sessions, as this is a year of transition. Manchester is also possibly more popular,  as it falls within the British Champs/Nationals qualifying window.  This will not happen next year as the County Champs move to January/February.

We will of course, with the assistance of the technical officials, endeavour to keep the competiton flowing. Your patience and understanding would be appreciated.

Once the competiton has finished the swimming committee will undertake a full review of events, times etc in readiness for 2016.
