In only his 3rd Gala and only 7 months after joining Rotherham Metro swimming club, Bowan has qualified for the Yorkshire finals in his age category for 50m backstroke. The qualifying time for a 10 year old boy is 45.6 seconds and Bowan recorded a time of 43.8 seconds. As well as this amazing achievement, he was less than a second off qualifying for 100m Freestyle. Bowan has more opportunities to qualify for more events at the Yorkshire Finals on the 7th September.
This is a fantastic achievement within his 1st year of swimming competitively and all of us are super proud of all the hard work and dedication Bowan has put in! We have a future swimming star on our hands!
