TWO pupils at a Weyhill Road school swam 'outstandingly' at a national tournament last month.

Rookwood School's Xen Medland, from Year 7, and Kyrill Kennet, Year 9, travelled to the London Aquatics Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday, 21 January.

The pupils took part to represent London West at the Independent Schools Association (ISA) National Finals.

Following their success at the London West Regional Swimming Gala in November last year, both boys have been busy training for the prestigious national event.

They both took home a number of gold, silver and bronze medals.

Xen received a medal in all of his events and he took gold in the freestyle relay, silver in the medley relay and bronze in the individual 50m butterfly.

Kyrill was awarded a gold medal in the freestyle relay, a silver medal in the medley relay and he came fourth place in the individual 100m breaststroke.

Miss Brown, head of PE, said: “A huge congratulations to Xen and Kyrill for their amazing performance on Sunday, we are very proud of you both.

"You’ve worked so hard and all your training really paid off.”
