More than 200 personal bests were clocked and records tumbled as Melton Mowbray Swimming Championships held their 50m Sprint Championships.

The opening gala of the season drew a turnout of more than 100 swimmers who produced some superb swimming skills.

All entrants were able to compete in all four strokes over 50m, with nine new championship records set.

Many young swimmers were competing for the first time and showed some great technique, while the senior swimmers impressed with speed and skills.

In the 50 freestyle, three swimmers dipped under 26 seconds for the boys, Will Graham taking the honours in 24.84secs, closely followed by Josh Tapsell (25.41) and Tom Rochelle (25.86).

And for the girls, Beth Walker clocked an impressive 28.84secs.

Juniors Chiara Reedha and Miles Willetts both had a great meet, taking gold in all four events.
