Anna Maine was competing this weekend in the Mare Nostrum Tour at Canet-en-Roussillon, Southern France, having been selected to swim under Team GB.
Many of the top international swimmers were competing in this famous French Swimming Tour to prepare themselves for the World Championships in Budapest and World Junior Championships in Indianapolis.
Anna competed in 50m and 200m back on Saturday and 100m back and 100m free on Sunday.
50m Back and 200m Back
Fantastic to see Anna make the A final for 50m Back and B final for 200m Back, swimming against the top international swimmers, Emily Seebohm (Australia), Lizzie Simmonds (GB), and top Dutch swimmers Maaike de Waard and Kira Toussaint. Great results to place 8th in the finals among this strong field of senior swimmers.
The B final for 200m Back saw Anna improve from her heat time and a great 2nd place in a time of 2:16.24.
Great swimming on top of some hard training.
100m Back and 100m Free
Anna once again made a B final following her morning heat swim in 100m Back and eventually placed 4th in a very close race for 2nd place in a time of 1:02.56. Great results again in amongst the senior swimmers.
After a busy weekend, a solid heat time of 56.99sec in 100m free for Anna in the heats.
Great weekend of swimming in preparation for the World Junior Championships in August
