A TRIO of super swimmers experienced success in a set of national finals.

Pupils from Rookwood School competed at the ISA National Swimming Finals, hosted at the London Aquatic Centre, at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

All three represented the London West region.

Year 4 pupil Amelie Searle was part of the junior girls’ team and won an individual silver medal in the backstroke, knocking four seconds off her personal best time, and gold in the Year 4 freestyle relay.

Xen competed in the Year 8 freestyle relay, taking the silver medal.

Joshua won two individual silver medals for his 100m freestyle and 100m backstroke and achieved a new personal record best time for his freestyle.

The achievements did not stop there as the boys also won gold medals in their freestyle and medley relays.

Following their race achievements, the pupils were delighted to be presented their medals by two swimming Olympians, Joe Roebuck and Chris Walker-Hebborn.

Rookwood School PE teacher Anita Kerrison said: “Everyone at Rookwood is hugely proud of Amelie, Joshua and Xen and we would like to congratulate them on their brilliant performances.

“It must have been quite daunting to swim in the same lanes as Olympic champions in the London 2012 Olympic pool but not only did they do our school proud but also the London West region.”

The London West region team went on to win the national swimming competition with 90 points more than their closest rivals.
