County Champs 2020 Distance events

The Norfolk County Championships 2020 got underway at The Sportspark in Norwich on Saturday 18th January. The competition runs across three consecutive weekends.
Overall a total of 74 West Norfolk Swimming Club members qualified to compete during the championships, a figure that represents over 50% of all swimming members.
For this first weekend of three, when the long-distance events took place, Suffolk ASA raced alongside their Norfolk counterparts in the only 50m pool across the two counties.
On Saturday morning the girls got things underway with the 800m freestyle, whilst the boys had to wait until the afternoon for their 1500m event. On Sunday the racing was reversed.
Over the course of the weekends freestyle events #purplearmy swimmers gave a great account of themselves, racking up an initial clutch of 15 medals from 27 swims and a host of personal best times;
