Swimmer Niamh is a record breaker as she stars at championships

T.P Properties sponsored local swimmer Niamh Robinson had a smashing time as records crumbled at a top competition.  Niamh was competing for her second claim club in Douglas in the Isle of Man, in the prestigious Swagelok Championship. 

On Saturday, she raced to a gold medal in the 11 year old girls’ age group at the 400m individual medley in her first swim at the distance.  She recorded a new championship record of 5.47.04 – three seconds faster than the previous record, putting her into third position overall in the North West.  She went on to  smash another record in the 100m backstroke, again knocking three seconds off her personal best with 1.14.08.  This achievement set a new championship record by 0.07 seconds and clinched another gold medal.  Niamh is now in ninth position within the UK at this event, so it was a phenomenal achievement.  She also competed in the 100m freestyle, where she won silver with a personal best time of 1.09.95.

On Sunday, Niamh competed in the 200m individual medley, taking gold medal and setting a new personal best of 2.42.20 to make her the second fastest in the North West to date.  In the 200m breaststroke she again achieved a personal best time of 3.03.24 swimming to fifth position in the open age group, taking top spot in the 11 year old girls’ age group in North West.

Her final event of the weekend was the 50m breaststroke, an event she won in 2010.  Once again she swam to a convincing win, some four seconds ahead of her nearest rival in 40.14 seconds.  This win places her into another top position within the 11 year old category within the North West.

Niamh, along with many other Pioneer 79 swimmers, will be competing in the Lancashire County Championships over the next couple of weekends at Manchester Aquatics Centre.  We at TPP wish Niamh and her colleagues every success!
