50m breaststroke success ranks Lucinda 11th in the UK
13-year-old Lucinda Norris, from Gloucestershire, has been ranked 11th in the UK within her age group for swimming the 50m breaststroke as a result of recent competition successes.
During the South West Regional Swimming Championships on 11th and 12th May, Lucinda won a silver medal in the 50m breaststroke and as a result of this success will now go on to compete at the English Nationals, where she currently holds the top spot for qualification.
Lucinda, who represents Cirencester Swimming Club, achieved a club open record with a time of 35.70 seconds. Speaking about her success Lucinda said: “I am delighted with my swim and am really looking forward to competing for the first time at the National Championships in August.”
During the final weekend of the South West Regional Swimming Championships on 18th and 19th May, Lucinda improved her personal best by 0.75 seconds in the 50m fly and just missed out on a place in the final. In the 50m freestyle she improved her personal best by 0.5 seconds in the heats and made the regional final but missed out on a medal by 0.3 seconds.
Lucinda is scheduled to compete in the Cardiff International meet this weekend and will need to slightly improve her 50m freestyle time if she is to make the National Championships in this event in addition to her 50m breaststroke.
