Swimmers from Monmouth School Girls’ Prep clinched a stunning gold medal in the national finals at London Aquatics Centre.

The girls knocked a remarkable 18.22 seconds off their qualifying time as they roared to victory in the Olympic Pool at The Independent Association of Prep Schools’ (IAPS) National Swimming Finals on Saturday 9th June.

Isobel Jones, Gwennan McConnell-Lawlor, Daisy Phillips, Ailsa Whitehead, Isabella Hull, Kathryn Rees, Joana Anjos and Emily Walker shone in the Under 11s 8x25m freestyle relay.

The Monmouth team, who had qualified for the nationals in fifth spot with a time of 2:31, had been training weekly for IAPS’s flagship event and clocked a brilliant 2:13:40 in the final.

The event is the largest annual prep school swimming gala in the UK and the whole day, in the Olympic Park, was a fantastic experience for the Monmouth girls.

Earlier this year, pupils from Monmouth School Girls’ Prep also brought home five medals from the Independent Schools Association’s National Swimming Finals, at the same venue.
