Fins’ swimmer Erin Taylor just missed out on a British Age Group medal, by the narrowest of margins on the final day of competition at the British Summer Championships, held at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Sheffield, from 22 to 28 July 2022.

Erin finished 4th in the final of the 100m breaststroke just one hundredth of a second behind Hannah Bowley of Repton. Erin’s time of 1 minute 12.90 seconds was another club record for Erin, her 8th of the year so far, and it beat her own record, set at the East District Age group championships in March of this year, by 0.9 seconds. The Derbyshire swimmer also recorded a PB of 0.01 seconds which turned out to be the time separating the two swimmers, such is the fine margins at this level.

Erin competed in two other events. In the 200m breaststroke Erin qualified for the finals in 8th place but improved her time in the final to gain a 6th place finish, and in the 200m Butterfly she finished in 14th place overall. Both times were marginally outside her PB.
