Both contesting their first UK Level Two short-course meets since 2019, they produced notable performances over their focal breaststroke events as well as alternative disciplines.

Ronny’s best swim of the weekend was his 100m backstroke where he knocked an amazing 7.5sec. off his time.

In the breaststroke, he swam lifetime bests in the 50m, 100m and 200m to finish sixth in all three events for the open men’s class and qualify for winter nationals in each. He had knocked 4sec. off his previous 200m time. He also equalled his bests in the 50m fly and 50m back.

Charlie-Joe contested his first Plymouth meet, taking gold in both 50m and 200m breaststroke and picking up a bronze in the 200m individual medley and 100m breaststroke where he swam a 1-02.05. He also swam a lifetime best in the 100m free with 52.47.
