Sensational Chloe Hannam raced to a stunning 23 event wins at South Lincs Competitive Swimming Club’s annual championships ten years ago, shattering 11 club records in the process.

The 14-year-old was among a clutch of star performers at the Spalding-based club’s end of year bash, which was contested over several weekends.

Many historic club records were broken, with Harry Bumfrey, Emily Blackbourn, Cheryl Wilson and Georgia Roberts among the record breakers.

Calvin Wilson was on fire with 12 wins, while Reggie Reeves bagged 11 and George Wensor 10.
