Bognor swimmers dip in to mark the Queen's 90th birthday

The Arena Sports Centre’s pool was the venue for all the squads to take to the water to recognise Her Majesty’s special birthday.

A total of 21 swimmers swam 90 lengths each. Fastest was Abby Turner who completed this in 29min 43sec.

Twenty swimmers aged six to 11 divided into three teams and each team swam a 90-length relay.

The first finished in 40 minutes. They called themselves the Hammerhead Otters. They were Kaitlin Hickmore, Logan Hickmore, Jude Raza, Violet Newman, Henry Macrae, Theo Bennett and Eloise Lyons.
