Daniel Sliwinski, who left the School in the summer of 2008, has
been busy preparing for the British Gas Swimming Championships
which begin today, Monday 29 March, at Ponds' Forge ISC in
Sheffield. The tournament also doubles up as the first
Commonwealth trial of the year.
Daniel is now trying to refocus after having had a poor start to
the year - something he puts down to growing a phenomenal three
centimetres in a month! By his own high standards, he
recorded a disappointing third in the 50m breaststroke and fourth
in both the 100m and 200m equivalents at the GB v Germany meeting
last month in Swansea.
However, Daniel said: "I didn't have the best of times against
Germany ….but I am confident I am through it now and I think I am
in the best form of my life." Ponds Forge will provide some
happy memories for Daniel, where he set a new British 100m
breaststroke record of 59.55 seconds at the National Youth
Championships last summer.
Through his swimming club, Gallica, Daniel has been involved in
the GBswimstars project, which aims to promote British aquatic
sports through stunning photography.
