Lancashire Championship Success for Lauren


On the weekend of the 11/12 January and 25/26th January, Lauren competed in the Lancashire Swimming County Championships in the 800m freestyle and in the 200m backstroke. Lauren achieved a silver medal in the 800m freestyle, despite a disrupted week of training. Lauren came out on top in the 200m backstroke, swimming the fastest time in Britain for 2020 in her age group- U16. In addition, this time was fast enough to secure a Lancashire County Championship Record that has previously stood for 16 years. Lauren added to her medal tally on the 25/26th January bringing her total to 6 golds, 2 silvers and 1 bronze- with golds achieved in the 50m Backstroke and 400m freestyle.

Great job Lauren, what an achievement! We are super proud of you at BGS!
