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”

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.

ASA Inter County Championships

8 October 2014 in Swimming Competition Info

On Sunday 19th October the Lancashire County Team will be heading to Ponds Forge for this high-energy, action packed battle for the ultimate title of County Team Champions.

The competition will see 40 teams from England, Scotland and Wales gather in Sheffield for a spectacular display of the nation’s youngest talent.

The atmosphere will be electric with 1,200 swimmers and 1,000 spectators raising the roof cheering their team to the winning touch. The teams swim in three age groups in a combination of 100m individual events and medley team relays culminating in the trilling 6x50m freestyle canon.

The Red Rose team have won the event for an unprecedented twelve successive years, and the 2014 team are very much hoping to make that thirteen.

This year’s Team Managers are John Stout from the City of Salford and Carolyn Dawe from City of Manchester Aquatics.

You will be able to follow the live streaming of the competition on the day on ASA website.

The very best of luck to all our Team.
