What a great start to the event with Luke Reeson, Jacob Leach and Grant Taylor all competing in the men's 100 FC.  The heats saw each of them produce PB's  with ALL three progressing into the 3 finals.  The Finals again saw all three step up such the Cockermouth finished with 3 swimmers in the top 16 in the country.  A great start to the meet.
Not content with one great swim Luke followed this swim with a 5 second improvement on his heat swim in the 100 BR to produce a massive 2.5 second PB.

Heats
Tom turns it on for 200 IM.  With Luke resting for tomorrow we only had one swimmer taking part this morning,  Tom Millburn.  Tom showed massive versatility with a new 1.5 sec PB he cruised into the Junior final with a 2.09.25.

Final
Off like a bullet Tom swam a great fly leg but possibly took a little too much out of the tank finishing in 2.10.16, for 9th, another great swim faster than he had ever been prior to trials.

HEATS
After a day's rest at trials Ed and Luke were today joined by Tom Millburn who swam the 1500m FC.   After a steady start he soon got into his rhythm posting a time of 16.22.53 just outside his PB.  Ed was in his favourite event today and made sure of a centre lane place in the Tokyo 22 final with a PB busting 2.15.6, beating his PB by 0.2 of a second and finishing 11th overall.
The plan for today for Luke was to race the morning but look to pull from this evenings session to concentrate on the 200Bk later in the week.  however so good was his heat swim that he placed himself right in contention in the Tokyo 22 final, with a 0.5 s PB in 54.3.

FINALS

Another amazing evening in Glasgow for the Ed and Luke, both of who smashed their PBs securing 3rd in the 200 Br in a European Junior nomination time of 2.15.15 and 1st for Luke in the 100fly Tokyo 22 final in 54.02 .
The is make the 4th consecutive year that Cockermouth have represented their Team GB with 4 different swimmers.  A massive well done to both 😃👍🏻💪🏻💪🏻🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
