Shakil sweeps Regional sprints

Haringey Aquatics makes record splash at regional championships


1 May, 2017 — Haringey Aquatics secured seven medals at the 2017 London Region Youth Championships (14 years +); the highest number ever achieved in the club’s 70-year history.


Leading the way was Tottenham’s Shakil Giordani who won four gold medals in the 50m Freestyle event (Mens 15 yrs),100m Freestyle event (Mens 15 yrs), 50m Butterfly event (Mens 15 yrs) and 50m Backstroke (Mens 15 yrs). This is the first time in Haringey Aquatics’ history that a swimmer has been a multiple Regional Champion in the sprint distances.

Other Haringey Aquatics medallists were Renat Samur (Silver; 50m butterfly, Mens 15 yrs); Alex Vonckx (Bronze, 200 IM); and Kelton Ryland (bronze; 200m breaststroke, Womens 15 yrs).

Commented Haringey Aquatic’s Head Coach Paul Doyle, “This is a record-breaking performance for us at Regionals and puts Haringey Aquatics squarely on the national swimming map.  I have to thank all swimmers and staff who had two closures two years ago but beat all the odds to deliver this level of results. This success is something we want to share with more borough residents, and is why we are campaigning for a new pool in Wood Green.”
