Results & Records
Club records are recognised as times set at the age the swimmer was on the day of the swim, regardless of the age group category used at the gala.
Below are links for searching the Swim England national database for personal best times and national, regional, county and club rankings from Licensed meets. The individual best times view has links to historic data held on the Swim England database for each event. This gives you a graphical view of your performance improvement over time - great for reminding yourself how far you've come on your swimming journey!

A record may only be made in:

- For individual swims, the record of the swim should be recognised and listed on the swimmingresults.org database for the meet where it occurred
- Times must be faster than the existing record. This may be an initial standard time in events where no swimmer has previously claimed a record.
5. New Records
New records will normally be updated within a month of the swim date using information submitted through the online Club Record Notification form available on the Didcot Barramundi website, and verified manually against the swimmingresults.org database. If a swimmer thinks they have set a record and it is missing from the swimmingresults.org database they should first check with Swim England before submitting their record claim.
A swimmer setting a Club Record will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, these will be awarded by the Head Coach, usually within one month of the verified record claim. For swimmers achieving multiple records these may be listed on a single certificate.
