Tom is the new European Junior Champion

Royal student Tom Derbyshire raced the 1500m Freestyle yesterday in the European Junior Championships being held in Hódmezővásárhely Hungary.

Tom was ranked 5th going into the race but took the race to the opposition from the start with no fear. Tom ended up smashing his personal best by 20 seconds (that’s a very long time in water) and winning the Gold Medal for GB. His time 15 minutes and 8 seconds. This was a World Class swim.

Thank you to all teachers and support staff who have had even the smallest part to play in helping Tom achieve this amazing feat. You should all be very proud.
