Golden times in Sheffield for Niamh

T.P Properties sponsored swimmer Niamh Robinson performed superbly once again at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge Sports Centre in the fifth Derventio Excel Swimming Squad’s long course open meet.

Niamh’s efforts secured her four gold medals, a place in the Amateur Swimming Association’s National Age Group Championships, a move up to first place in the North West rankings, and third place on the National rankings.

The 11-year-old impressed in six events in the level one competition which attracted top swimmers from across the country.

In the 200m backstroke she swam a strong, mature and tactical race to take the gold medal in a personal best time of 2.38.91.  She followed that with gold in the 200m breaststroke in a fantastic time of 3.01.88, setting a new personal best.

In was the 100m butterfly (not one of her favourite events) she finished in 1.20.96, a couple of seconds down on her personal best time.  However, she bounced back in the 100m backstroke event, taking another gold medal.  She then took silver in the 200m individual medley and finished off with another gold in the 100m breaststroke.

To date, Niamh has achieved a total of four national qualifying times – 100m and 200m breaststroke and in the 100m and 200m backstroke.

Niamh’s head coach, John McGinty, said: ‘I was extremely pleased with her swimming over the course of the weekend.’   The same is heartily echoed by all the team at TPP.  Well done Niamh!
