SALISBURY Stingrays swimmer Oscar Bellinger won three gold medals at the Swim England Summer Nationals.

Achieving personal bests in all his races, Bellinger took gold in the men’s 13-14 years 400m, 800m and 1,500m freestyle.

Fellow Stingrays swimmers Theo Parker-Minty, Ethan Cleary and Georgie Byam were also competing at the event.

Parker-Minty, 14, smashed 30 seconds off his personal best in the 1,500m freestyle, coming fourth overall.

In a well-paced race, butterfly specialist Cleary, 14, took a second off his heat time for the 200m butterfly, coming in sixth with a time of 2.23.26.

At 13, Byam was the youngest swimmer from the club to qualify for the national competition. She took 13 seconds off her personal best in the 1,500m freestyle, finishing 11th with a time of 19.05.

In yet another success for Salisbury Stingrays, Byron Robson competed in the British Nationals in the men’s 50m and 100m butterfly in the 16-year age group at the end of July.

Qualifying for the British Nationals means that Robson was one of the top 24 swimmers in the country for these events in his age group. Robson narrowly missed out reaching the final in the 50m butterfly by 0.06 seconds.

Their results mean that all five Salisbury swimmers have finished the season in the top 23 in British national rankings in their respective disciplines.

Stingrays head coach, Chris White, said: "They have all shown great maturity in their swims and great confidence to secure these amazing results.

"It has been a great season with record-breaking results and the future is very bright for the club’s swimmers."
