Haringey Aquatics head coach Paul Doyle full of praise for teenager after enjoying ‘breakout year in the pool’

Shakil Giordani has had a November to remember with a string of good results for Haringey Aquatics.

The teenager claimed two bronze medals at the 2017 London Swimming Winter Championships at the London Aquactics Centre earlier this month.

Giordani took bronze in the 50-metre butterfly as well as the 100-metre freestyle in the boys 16 and under category.

The Haringey Aquatics talent was unlucky not to claim a third bronze medal as well following a fourth-place finish in the 50-metre backstroke.

Head coach Paul Doyle expressed his pride after seeing Giordani’s feats.

Doyle said: “Shakil has had a breakout year in the pool, and should be proud of his achivements.

“We now wish him well at the upcoming Nationals in Sheffield in December.”
