COPS head coach Ben Negus said: “The changes that British Swimming introduced last year to the qualification process for the National Championships means that attendance at this Open Meet has a different emphasis this year.

“Coming one month after the return to training from the summer lay-off and following on from several league competitions, the Robin Hood Open is now an opportunity to focus on the technical goals set out in the squad meetings, as well as being a ‘first taster’ for some of the younger swimmers of the long course format.”

The prizes were presented by Ben’s father Ian Negus, head coach at Sherwood Colliery Swimming Club, who promote the meet.
