Posted by Sue Reeve on 2 October 2018

Jessica Hancock and Odhran Mallon of the Crawley Town Life Saving Club represented GBR at the recent European Youth (U19) Life Saving Championships held for two days at the Olympic 50m pool at the magnificent Limerick University sports complex and then two days at the scenic Kilkee, County Claire beach.

Jessica was GBR hardest working and highest points scoring competitor in the pool when achieving individually two A Finals and four B finals as well as three relay teams all in two days including both morning heats and afternoon finals, while Odhranmaking his first GBR appearance achieved four B finals in one of which the Super Life Saver where is smashed the British record for his age group Super Lifesaver by 3 seconds when recording a time of 2:26.92 seconds. He was also questionable disqualified from a European gold when the judges ruled his catcher caught the line outside of his lane line in the 12.5m line throw. Like Jessica Odhran also supported his team mates in four relays, all making A finals.

The GBR team comprised six girls and six boys who were coached by Crawley Town’s Gary Lee for the pool events in which they finished in fourth in Europe behind Italy, Germany and Spain. Despite winning the Ocean events, GBR stayed in fourth place overall.

For the Youth team this was a warm-up for the World Championships RSCUE 2018 in November and the next time they compete will be at the Crawley Open Championships before they fly out to Australia.
