Regional Heat Results 2012

Congratulations to all those who competed at Kingswood Leisure Centre, Bristol on Saturday 15th September!! It was amazing to see over 50 competitors demonstrating their lifesaving skills to a large audience of parents, friends and officials.

The organisers wish to thank all those who helped make the day possible – casualties, officials, timekeepers, runners, scorers, centre staff and helpers!

The results have been thoroughly checked and we are pleased to announce that the results are now online – West Region Championships 2012 Results. Well done to all those who have progressed to the National Final! The scoring spreadsheet with individual markings for each casualty within the initiative tests will be made available online at a later date.

During the presentations, we announced that Paris Hazelton-Cavill and Hannah Palmer had been awarded fourth place. On checking of the results, it was found that they should have been awarded third place. Apologies to Paris and Hannah for the error and to Catherine Lang and Nia Taylour who are now awarded fourth place.

More details about the final will be sent through to you in the coming weeks, please check your e-mails regularly or get in touch with your local team manager. Questions can also be directed to regionals@rlsswest.org.uk.
