October 22-23, 2021 – Time Trial Swim Meet Review
Last weekend (October 23-24) marked our first swim competition organized by BEST, not only did we make it a TSA qualifier but we also invite our partners Arena to handle the live streaming of events throughout the weekend.
We saw this as a great opportunity for swimmers to compete for qualifying times and gain race exposure for the first time in many months
of reduced training and competition.
The meet ran fantastically well and it’s testament to the hard work of everyone at BEST and our partners to make this possible. The feedback has been fantastic!
This meet followed a similar format successfully implemented at a swim meet earlier this year at Brighton College ‘The Festival’
BEST is keen to keep this as an annual meet and maybe add others into the calendar as well.
The meet in numbers – We hosted just over 200 swimmers over two days, BEST swimmers achieved over 200 personal best times of which 155 were qualifying times to Thailand Open Championships to be held late November.
A huge well done to all those who competed it was truly a fantastic event to attend and we are all excited to see you race again soon.
August 2021 – Tokyo Olympics Review
Congratulations to both Wine and Joy for qualifying and taking part in the Tokyo Olympics 2020/21. Taking part in the Olympics is a huge achievement, They both showed up and gave their BEST. From all of us at the club we couldn’t be more proud. You belong on this stage and this is the start of your Olympic journey.
Both Swimmers were 1% off either their personal best times and/or national records. We look forward to your return where we can build of this experience and push on. They now deserve a long break after what was not ideal preparation and required total focus physically and mentally for the last 4-5 years.
