Chatteris Kingfishers SC coach Andrew Jakeman was extremely proud of 13-year-old Tyler Thomas last weekend who competed in the British National Championships in Sheffield, after having qualified in the Regional championships for the 50 and 100m backstroke.

Tyler exceeded all expectations by getting into the final of the 50m backstroke after swimming a personal best time in the heats and then swimming another pb in the finals, finishing in 10th place.

He also swam a best time in the 100m backstroke, finishing in 16th.

Tyler will now continue his development at the Peterborough Swimming Club and although sad to see him leave the club, Kingfishers wish him all the best for the future.
