Swimming: Goddy club’s James receives record-breaking recognition

No wonder James Quinn is smiling. He has helped put Huntingdonshire’s newest swimming club, First Strokes, on the map ... twice.
The 10-year-old earlier this year broke two county records in the Cambridgeshire Championships, one of which had stood for eight years.
His successes came in the 10-year-old boys 50 metres breaststroke and 100 metres breaststroke.
Recognition from the county has only recently come through and the picture shows James showing both his award certificates next to the club’s trophy cabinet. A cabinet which is gradually filing up.
They reckon it’s remarkable to think the First Strokes club was only formed five years ago and is already producing county champions and record holders. Who are we to argue with that assessment?
James has until the end of the year to try and complete a clean sweep of the breaststroke records. He will be doing his utmost to make a big impression over 200 metres, too.
