Arena League Round One Report
Braintree & Bocking SC took part in the first round of the Arena League on 10th October, having been promoted to Division One.
BBSC performed superbly against strong opposition to finish seventh on the night. The main aim for this year is to stay in the division, with most of the swimmers swimming a year under age. This will be invaluable experience for next year when we hope to make an impact in the division. Eventual winners Harlow were in impressive form and won the round with relative ease, but there were some outstanding swims from Braintree swimmers.

National Success for Ole
BBSC swimmer Ole Mills competed at the British and English Summer National Championships in Sheffield at the end of July. Only the top 32 swimmers in the rankings from each event are invited to swim at Nationals, it is the elite of Age Group swimming in Britain. Ole swam the 100m and 200m Breaststroke at British Nationals and the 400m IM at English Nationals. In all three events, he was agonisingly close to reaching the final, just missing the top 10 by less than a second in all three events. He set new PB's in the 100m Breaststroke and 400m IM on his way to 16th in the 100m Breaststroke (1:09.64), 12th place in the 200m Breaststroke (2:31.90) and 12th place in the 400m IM (4:52.49).
These are fantatsic achievements, congratulations Ole!
