More than 100 personal bests were shattered by members of Newmarket Swimming Club during the two-day New Year Resolution Meet held at the UEA Sportspark in Norwich at the weekend.

In total, 126 personal bests — including 13 new and many bettered Suffolk County Championship qualifying times, as well as five new regional times — were achieved, together with 10 gold, nine silver and nine bronze medals.

Heading towards the Suffolk Championships, to be held in Ipswich in March, Ignacio Larghero has four regional times and Henry Newell has an impressive eight times.

Newell, Ella McCleary and Etholle Marks — all juniors at the Exning Road club — have been selected to represent Suffolk at the Junior Inter County Competition on Sunday, Febraury 8, at Luton’s 50-metre pool.
