Youngster called up for event in Paris next month

Haringey Aquatics swimmer Shakil Giordani has been selected in the Middlesex county team for the French Golden Lanes Tour next month.

The selection follows a hugely successful Middlesex County Championships for Giordani, winning two golds, four silvers and two bronzes.

Giordani also won trophies as the fastest boy, 16-and-under in both the 50m backstroke and the 50m butterfly.

“Shakil is going from strength to strength with his swimming,” said Haringey Aquatics head coach Paul Doyle.

“After qualifying for multiple events at the British Summer and Winter Nationals, he is the first ever Haringey Aquatics swimmer to be selected by the County for an international competition.

“This is one more step towards the top for Shakil.”

In addition, Haringey Aquatics’ head of teaching Sharon Austin has been selected as team manager for the event.

The French Golden Lanes Tour takes place in the northern Parisian suburb of Sarcelles from March 9-11.
