Success for Will Gearey

Swimming Success for Will Gearey

Will Gearey (Year 10) has qualified for this year’s British Summer swimming championships which are due to be held in Sheffield from 24th July.  Based on his age at the end of the year, he will be competing in the 15 year age group (age at end of year), with only the top 24 British swimmers being invited to attend.

Will, who swims for Worcester Swimming Club, has qualified in the 50m and 100 m freestyle and 50m butterfly.  Having won a bronze medal in the 50m butterfly in the 2017 championships, he is hoping to make the finals in all three events this year.

Will has enjoyed a very successful season so far, winning multiple golds at the recent West Midlands Championships and sweeping the board at the County Championships earlier in the year.

He has also been selected to represent both the West Midlands and Worcestershire in 2018, and also invited onto the World Talent Identification Programme for Modern Pentathlon.

Congratulations to Will for his tremendous achievements this season, and we all wish him every success in the national championships.
