YOUNG East Morton swimmers Imogen Tiffany and Robbie Ambler picked up impressive silver medals at the Yorkshire Championships.

City of Bradford Swimming Club picked up 17 medals in total at the prestigious event, with Tiffany claiming hers after a fine race in the 16 years 50m breaststroke.

Ambler matched that second place finish with his sterling display in the 15 years 50m breaststroke.

Keighley swimmer Quinn Austin-Kelly also made it on to the podium at the event, which was held across two venues, the John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds and Ponds Forge in Sheffield.

Austin-Kelly took home bronze after his excellent swim in the 15 years 100m breaststroke.

Swimming in their respective age groups, it was Sophia Gledhill, Alex Dunn and Isabelle Randhawa who claimed City’s highest placings, the former winning gold in the 200m backstroke and the latter two both taking top spot in the 50m freestyle for their respective age groups.

Gledhill then went on to claim silver in the 50m and 100m backstroke and 400m individual medley.

Dunn also finished in third place in the 100m breaststroke and was part of the girls 13 years and over 200m medley relay team who claimed a silver medal.

Her sister Rebecca was also part of this team.

Relative newcomer Randhawa, swimming in the 10-11 years events,  also finished in third place in the 50m backstroke and butterfly events in her age group.

Swimming in the 17 years and over events, Gina Warrior, who was also part of the successful relay team, took silver in the 50m backstroke.

Rounding off the medallists in the girls events was 13-year-old Amy Hagyard, who won bronze in the 100m breaststroke.

In the boys events, aside from Ambler and Austin-Kelly, it was 15-year-old Freddy Dean who shone.

He came home with two bronze medals in the 50m backstroke and freestyle.
