3rd December 2015

TALENTED swimming star Teddy Roberts continued his impressive season by claiming a haul of medals from a recent event.

The 12 year-old Rydal Penrhos pupil again demonstrated his supreme talent in the pool by taking home five medals from a Junior Sprint Meet, which was held in Wrexham on Sunday, November 22.

In the face of stiff competition from 13 clubs, Teddy managed to pick up a medal for each of the races he competed in, which included a gold medal in the 50m butterfly in a time of 33.23 seconds, and he is now the number one ranked swimmer for his age group in this discipline.

Further gold success came in the form of the 100m individual medley, where Teddy knocked an impressive three seconds off his personal best time.

The Colwyn Bay pupil, who was competing for Llandudno Swimming Club, put in another rousing performance in the meet’s final race, breaking the 30 second barrier for the first time to claim his third gold.

Teddy also claimed silver during a thrilling 50m backstroke finish, where he narrowly missed out on triumph, and managed a fourth place finish in the 50m breaststroke, ensuring he finished with the most points from any person of his age competing.

Head of Swimming Maciej Ruszkowski, said: “Teddy has been working extremely hard on improving his technique and stamina in recent weeks and it is great to see all his hard work paying off.

“For him to be ranked as the number one 50m butterfly swimmer in Wales for his age group is a tremendous achievement that is richly deserved.

“There is no doubt that Teddy is going to go on and flourish even further in the pool, and staff here at Rydal Penrhos will do our very best to ensure that his potential is fulfilled.”
