Members of a South Norfolk swimming club performed brilliantly at county-wide swimming competition.

On Saturday, June 17 and Sunday, June 18 three swimmers from Harleston Stingrays swimming club travelled to Thetford to take part in the Norfolk County Challenge swimming event.

Nathan Birchenough walked away with two gold medals in the under 10s boy’s age group in the 50m frontcrawl and 50m breaststroke events.

Fellow swimmers Andre Dowe and Benjamin Blowers also performed well, coming away from the event with four new personal best times.

Laura Goodswen, Harleston Stingrays coach, said: “I was really impressed by the boys’ attitude and how they conducted themselves throughout the competition. They have really stepped up this weekend they should be proud of their achievements.”

The Harleston Stingrays Swimming Club is a voluntary-run swimming club.
