Apologies for the delay in getting news and results on the website for the end of April and beginning of May. I've got a lot of catching up to do following the very successful training camp in Spain. Please bear with me while I try to catch-up, as well as get all the race information out before next weekend!
Adam was very disappointed to miss the April time trial but he had another very important occasion to attend, his Bar Mitzvah.
He was thinking of everyone while he was making his presentation at the synagogue and was very disapointed that he wasn't allowed to turn up all sweaty in his running gear!
Congratulations to Adam.
Jon has put together a training schedule incorporating all Club training sessions for the next five weeks, incorporating both junior and adult sessions, including some combined sessions.
Please note there will be no junior sessions on Saturday 1 May, Tuesday 4 May and Saturday 8 May.
Open water swimming sessions are due to start on Monday 17 May. Further details will be confirmed soon.
Congratulations to everyone racing at the weekend. Results from the Club Championship time trial will be added as soon as possible.

The Easter sports camp at Alleyn's School was great fun and I would recommend it. Apart from an afternoon of rain the sun shone which of course added to the enjoyment.
For the 3 days we were split into 2 groups and did a mix of swimming running and cycling.Each morning we started with swimming and we worked on all strokes using floats and flippers. We also spent a bit of time on tumble turns which I found useful.
We did a running bleep test together which was also very fun. I enjoyed cycling the most we learned some new skills including dead turns and body shapes.On day 2 we used the turbos and rather unfortunately my bike became stuck to the dodgy turbo and after a good 30 mins of trying to get it off gave up and poor Mum had to lug the bike and turbo home.Thankfully it was removed the following afternoon thanks to John,Brian a lot of WD40 and some large grippers!
All in all a great 3 days and I am looking forward to the next one.

I was excited about the camp as I knew it was going to be fun and I was looking forward to seeing my friends and training with everybody. We swam every day for one and a half hours. It was a challenge for me as I swam up a group, but although I was tired I did really well with my backstroke turns, butterfly and tumble turns. We even had time for some fun with the bungee cords and the 'jumping in and getting out' game. We got ASA certificates and badges.
On our bikes we practiced skills and transitions, which was very useful for me with new cleats! We also had a turbo run session in the rain. We all did the bleep run test and everyone worked really hard. Bevan from the Crystal Palace Sports Injury Clinic came and talked to us about stretching and showed us some we could do everyday and we all did some together.
Thanks to all the coaches, Jon (Dad), Louise and Chelsea.

James Allen took part in the Modern Pentathlon World Cup Schools Biathlon on Saturday 10 April, winning his age category. He did the 100m swim in 57:47 which is just off his pb. He went in to the run in second place and, as it was a staggered start set off two seconds behind the first place, but managed to overtake before they were out of the first bend. They then went off track into the trees, but James was still in the lead as they came back into the arena and finished comfortably ahead of the rest.
You can read a full report in the Lewisham News Shopper.
So the first event in our Club Championships at Hillingdon is complete. With 14 junior members competing there was an even split between the Wiggos and the Cavs giving each team 70 points, however an extra 10 points go to the Cavs for finishing the team pursuit first.
Please support the next events coming up and earn points for your team!
