Stunning Lauren Goldsmith lead the glory parade for the Eastbourne Swimming Club at the the Sussex County Championships this weekend.

Goldsmith was the fastest off the blocks to secure the sixth spot in her age group in the 200m backstroke event with an 11-second personal best.

Her success inspired James Grimmond, who pulled a 10m-lead by the end of the breaststroke leg to finish first in the 400m medley with a 28-second personal best.

Josh Lemon triumphed in the 100m breaststroke, while Sean Wright won the contest in the 200m pulling first in the last 25 metres.

The 17 swimmers brought an overall total of 17 gold, 7 silver and 6 bronze medals and 31 top 8 places to confidently look forward to the Regional Championships in May.
