Hannah Burvill and Connie Dean scooped 13 golds between them as they dominated the ASA South East Region Winter Championships in Portsmouth.
Only four swimmers managed to deny either Burvill or Dean claiming gold at the two-day event, with 18-year old Woking swimmer Burvill securing eight titles and Maidenhead's 16-year old Dean striking five golds.
Burvill scooped the 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m Freestyle titles and the 50m, 100m and 200m Backstroke clean sweep before capping off her weekend with gold in the 50m Butterfly, the same event in which she won bronze at this year’s British Summer Championships in Sheffield.
There were PBs in five of Burvill’s eight events with highlights including a 1:57.11 heat swim in the 200m Free and a 4:12.25 effort over twice the distance.
The other three lifetime bests came in the backstroke events, courtesy of 28.85, 1:00.61 and 2:11.38 efforts in the 50m, 100m and 200m respectively.
Dean was also in the form of her life as she smashed her PBs for golds in the 100m and 200m Breaststroke, and 200m and 400m Individual Medley, as well as claiming the 100m Butterfly title.
Dean’s improvement in the breaststroke events was particularly impressive, as she sliced four seconds off her 100m Breast PB and more than seven seconds off her 200m Breast PB with efforts of 1:09.81 and 2:29.72 respectively.
She followed up with lifetime best times of 2:14.26 and 4:43.74 in the 200m and 400m IM respectively while 1:02.35 did the job for Dean in the 100m Fly.
In the boys’ events, British Summer Championships medallists David Murphy and Tom Flaherty impressed as they picked up golden doubles.
City of Oxford swimmer Murphy won the 50m Breaststroke in 27.96 after a PB 27.75 in the heats before adding the 100m Breaststroke title in 1:00.67 after a PB 1:00.59 in the heats.
Milton Keynes swimmer Flaherty captured the 400m Freestyle title in 3:58.23 before doubling up over 200m Freestyle in a PB 1:51.06.
