Hosts Fareham produced an incredible haul of 200 medals in total - 81 gold, 60 silver and 59 bronze.

Head coach Stewart Crowe was delighted with the club’s performance and said: ‘Overall, the Fareham swimmers have swum exceptionally well.

‘I’ve only been back as head coach since September last year, so there’s a lot of work to be done.

‘But I’m sure that with more attendance in training and attracting new members, we can continue to make improvements.

‘The signs are good for the future and I’m extremely pleased with what we’ve achieved.

‘The organisation has been great. It’s taken a lot of time and hard work by the committee members and parents.’

Among the medal winners were Xanthe West, Anna Ross, Alicia Judd, Kai Jackson and Joseph Davies in what was an excellent performance from all swimmers.

Around 65 per cent of the 70 Fareham swimmers, from nine years through to masters, achieved personal bests.
