More PB's For Baylie!
The weekend of the 27th and 28th May saw the North West Regional Swimming Championships take place at Manchester Aquatics Centre.
This year Baylie qualified for 5 events and chose to compete in 4, starting with the 200m Butterfly on Saturday.
Baylie had entered this event as the slowest competitor in her age group at this competition and was racing for the experience along with hoping for a Personal Best at the very most.
Not only did she achieve a PB by 13 seconds, she also qualified for the final! This was Baylie's first qualifier at this level and was quite a shock for her as she just never expected it. A few hours later, after putting nerves and shock aside, she was back in the water for the Final finishing 8th in the North West for 200m Butterfly - quite an achievement!
Sunday saw Baylie back at the Aquatics Centre to compete in another 3 events, 50m Back, Free and Butterfly and again, she came away from those events with a PB in each, meaning that over the whole of the Regional competition she had managed a 100% PB rate! Another amazing achievement!
