Where there's a Will there's a way!
What an achievement!
Wyre Forest Swimming Club entered one swimmer for the 2018 County Distance Championships at Worcester on the 21st of January.
Twelve months ago Will Guest had not achieved any county qualifying times at all, so the County Distance Championships was a huge mile stone for him. Will overcame his nerves to put in an amazing performance.
In the 800m freestyle he shaved five seconds from his entry time to win the Bronze medal in the boys 16 years and over age group and in the 1500m he smashed his entry time by a massive 18 seconds to finish 4th in the 16 years and over age group. Both of the times he achieved are regional qualifying times and he will now go on to represent Wyre Forest at the West Midland Regional Long Course Championships at Coventry in April.
Will truly has proved that hard work and commitment pay off.

Congratulations Will, Wyre Forest is so proud of you!
