Pupil Achievements at St Thomas More Catholic School.
Daniel recently took part in the Northumberland & Durham County Swimming Championships 2019, where he became County Champion at 7 events with a staggering 7 gold medals and 1 silver medal in the following events; 50m Backstroke, 100m Backstroke, 50m Freestyle, 100m Freestyle, 50m Butterfly, 100m Butterfly, 200m Individual Medley and 200m Freestyle. Daniel’s gold medal results place him in the top 5 swimmers in the British Rankings for the 12 year old category for the 7 events. His 50m Backstroke time of 32.70 seconds places him as the fastest 12 year old in Great Britain in the last 12 months! This is an amazing achievement, and we cannot commend Daniel’s hard work and determination enough. We wish him continued success for the future.
