Ealing Swimming Club’s Ekaterina Avramova is on her way to this summer's Olympic Games in Rio.

At the European Aquatic Championships held at the London 2012 pool, Avramova showed her class by progressing to the final of both the 50m and 100m backstroke finishing seventh in 28.49s and eighth in 1.00.52, as well as the semi-final of the 200m backstroke in 2:11.21.

As a result, she bagged not only ESC, Middlesex, and London Region records, but also Turkish National records that sees her on the plane to Brazil.

Ealing Head Coach, Dave Heathcock, was involved as coach to the Turkey team at a tough Championships but now switches kit to become Head Coach of the GB team at the European Junior Championships held in Hódmezővásárhely, Hungary, in July where he will continue to develop the next generation of Olympians.

National record: Ekaterina Avramova

On the domestic front, Ealing swimmers showed well in the London Region Age Group Championships at Crystal Palace.

ESC boys Matthew Burton, Anton Akopian, Rabah Hadjazi and Miles Clark stormed to victory in the 4x200m freestyle in a super-quick 8m:24.15s with ‘B’ team, Rohan Vazirani, Oscar Jameson, George Barnes and Andreas Gherman, demonstrating Ealing’s strength in depth, by winning bronze.

They now await confirmation of national qualification.

The last session of the championships ended on a high with Jason Mahmutogli, 11, and Andreas Gherman, 14, triumphing in their respective 50m fly finals.

In a busy weekend, Jason qualified for four other finals.

Winners: Andreas-Gherman and Jason Mahmutogli

Thirteen-year-old Pietro Lombardo continued to impress with personal best times and silver in the 100m breaststroke in 1:14.52, bronze in the 50m event in 34.08 and another bronze in the 400m IM in 5:16.04, qualifying in two further finals.

This should be good enough for national qualification.

Also qualifying for finals in the second weekend were Leah Whittaker, 11, Billy Lee Knowles, 13, and Auryn White.

Age group head coach, Allan Thornton was a happy man with a stopwatch.

He said: "We had strong performances this week, and hopefully these results will help a few to move higher up the national rankings."
