Crouch End youngster wins gold as Haringey Aquatics scoop 5 medals

Tottenham & Wood Green Journal reports

Crouch End youngster Max Green battled hard to win a closely-contested boys’ 50m breaststroke final as Haringey Aquatics won a total of 5 gold medals at the ASA Middlesex Age Group Championships this week.

Teenager Renat Samur recorded a double, snatching victories in both the 100m and 50m boys’ 14 years breaststroke, while Alex Vonckx matched that achievement in the 50m backstroke event for the same age group.

Joe Northover won the men’s 17-and-over 50 backstroke. There were strong podium finishes for several other Haringey swimmers, with 17-year-old Sushila Ghose-Coveney taking silver medals in both the 100m and 200m backstroke.

 

Haringey Aquatics coach Paul Doyle said: “While this event is held early in the season, the tournament always helps to build solid platforms as Haringey swimmers progress to regional and national championships.

“We look to have more swimmers than ever before competing at those events in 2016 and beyond!”
