Diss Otters at Regionals

A small group of Diss Otters swimmers took part in this years East of England Regional Swimming Championships over the two May bank holiday weekends.

Three swimmers, Matthew Tatum, Isaac Bachu and Cameron Day took part in the first weekends competition at the Inspire Sports Village, Luton, for swimmers aged 15 and over.

All three swimmers swam really well with new personal bests set by Isaac in the 50m butterfly and Matthew in the 50m backstroke.

Matthew Munnings flew the Diss Otters flag on his own, with coach Jamie Rush supporting him, at the UEA Sportspark at the second weekend for competitors aged 14 and under.

Matthew raced in seven events gaining new personal bests in five of them.

His highlights were the 50m and 100m butterfly where he narrowly missed making the final in both, finishing 10th and 11th respectively.

Regionals qualification times are really tough and all four swimmers should be extremely proud of their achievements.

The clubs swimmers are next in action in the Norwich Swan Sprint Trophy Meet at Wymondham on Saturday 10th June.
