Wiltshire County Youth Championship 2022

Wiltshire County Competition was held at the Link Centre, Swindon on 22nd and 23rd January, 5th and 6th of February 2022. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, Wiltshire County needed to cut the amount of entries by 1/3 as pool time was limited and the swimmers needed to spread out around the pool therefore no spectators were allowed. To achieve this Wiltshire County made the entry times more difficult to achieve, resulting in fewer entries.


Chippenham ASC had a team of 8 swimmers that qualified and competed at this event, they were;


Daniel Holden, Holly Parker, Isabelle Chappell, Joshua Watt, Leo John, Lillia Barnett, Louis Nicholls, and Oliver Brown.


The swimmers swam a total of 42 races over the 4 days. Wiltshire ASA ran finals for each of the 4 age groups; 14 year olds, 15 year olds, 16 years and 17 years and over, in all the 50m and 100m events. The fastest 6 swimmers in each of these 4 age groups, in each 50m or 100m event, then raced again at the end of the session. Chippenham ASC had swimmers who made the finals and also won medals in the longer events and placed in the junior (15 and under) championships or open championships (fastest 3 swimmers of any age) they were;
