WILL GEAREY’S SUCCESS AT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
We returned to school at the start of term to learn of more success in the swimming pool for Will Gearey (Year 10). Following a highly successful season,Will qualified for the British Swimming Summer Championships which took place in Sheffield at the end of July.
Competing against the top swimmers in his age group, he reached the finals in three of the five events he had qualified for, winning the bronze medal in the 50m butterfly, having knocked half a second off his personal best. He also finished 6th in the 100m freestyle & 7th in the 50m freestyle events, again achieving new personal best times in both finals. As a result, he has been invited to join England Talent Programme by Swim England.
In October, Will – who swims for Worcester swimming club – will represent Worcestershire in the Inter-County Championships, again in Sheffield. In November he will also be defending his national Biathlon championship title – an event which he has won for the past three years.
Congratulations to Will, and we wish him every success in his forthcoming competitions.
