The World School Swim Championships 2023 | Roll of Honour
Young swimmers went above expectations in last week’s World School Swim Championships in London, with many leaving with performances they can be immensely proud of.
Schools from around the globe took part in the two-day swimming competition on the international stage at the state-of-the art London Aquatics Centre.
35 schools from 11 countries (including three continents) made the trip to the home of the 2012 London Olympics at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Before the fun began in the pool, a special guest joined the students last Friday to provide a motivational story of her successful swimming career. Former Team GB breaststroke competitor and two-time Olympian Molly Renshaw spoke with the young swimmers about her experiences as a young athlete on the world stage.
At the age of just 14 Molly made her debut at the World Championships – with many students of a similar age in the room her knowledge and tips were invaluable ahead of the competition kicking off.
After discussing her Olympic journey, youngsters were able to ask Molly questions and, of course, obtain autographs and take pictures!
The following day the main event sprung into action, as each school took to the competition pool for the first time with 50m events and relays taking centre stage across the four age categories on Day 1.
In addition to the individual medals up for grabs, every school looked to gain points from each event to contribute to the age category World School Swim Championships team competitions. There were prizes for the winning boys and girls teams in the U11, U13, U15 & Open age categories with four overall age group winners also set to be crowned at the end of proceedings.
