Camden Swiss Cottage’s swimmers made a strong start to their season as an elite squad returned from the 2014 Amateur Swimming Association South Zonal Meet with a host of medals.

Camden were facing tough competition at Millfield School in Somerset, taking on the very best that the south, south east and south west a have to offer – and the north Londoners more than held their own.

Isobel Moffatt, 15, had a particularly strong weekend, finishing with a brilliant silver medal in the 50m butterfly.

In doing so, she missed the British Championships qualifying time by an agonising 0.01 of a second – and she also powered home to touch fifth in the longer 100m event.

Indigo Mathews, 14, put in a strong performance in the 200m freestyle, taking a bronze medal in two minutes 11.79 seconds, while showing her versatility to take fifth in the 400m individual medley and sixth in the 200m backstroke.

Maddy Hookway, 14, continued to show good form, finishing just off the podium in fourth place in the 100m breaststroke while clocking a great new personal best time of 1:17.90.

Hookway also sprinted strongly to take fifth place in another impressive new best time in the 50m event.

Also putting in notable performances were 15-year-old Bryce Puszet, who swam a new best time in the 200m freestyle, and 14-year-old Andrew Garcia, who achieved a new best in the 50m free.

Head coach Tim Hartley said: “I was pleased with the form this early in the season and we had a good number of really strong swims.

“We’re in a tough training period at the moment and all the indicators at this stage are very positive.”
