St Ives swimmer James Quinn enjoyed a fantastic opportunity to swim with world champion Adam Peaty at a recent training camp in Derby.
Quinn is the county record holder in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke for 11-year-olds and is one of the fastest in the country for his age.
He attended the world record series training camp, which was run by Mel Marshall, Peaty's coach at the City of Derby Swimming Club.
The focus was on specific stroke training, with the swimmers divided up into pairs in one of the lanes.
Quinn did not have a partner so was joined by Peaty, who won the 50m and 100m breaststroke at the 2015 world championships.
It gave Quinn an up close view of one of the country's most talented swimmers, inspiring him to achieve even greater heights.

In addition, each club champs run by the club requires a minimum of 11 officials and preferably 15 officials each time. All the officials must have undertaken formal training and be licensed with the ASA. At the moment the majority of our officials are parents of children in the Sharks squads. Minnows and Marlins squads are far less qualified at the moment, and yet the parents of the Sharks swimmers often need to officiate where their children are not swimming. So we would like to up the numbers!
Please join our team of qualified officials. The more officials/judges we have, the more the work can be distributed evenly. Download the application form here. Please return the form to me (SISC noticeboard box or in person) and I will send off all applications to the regional officer with payment from the club.
If you would like to discuss this further please speak to me directly or email me at Webmaster
