December 16, 2022

A 12-year-old pupil at Monmouth School for Boys has created big waves at a regional swimming competition.
Archie won the overall Pentathlon event ahead of all the boys in his age group, a gold medal and three silvers.
The Year 8 pupil also recorded five personal-best times, cutting an impressive 12 seconds in one of his events.
Archie starred in the Newport Christmas Cracker against a number of clubs from across South-East Wales.
This was Archie’s latest success in the pool, having previously qualified for the regional swimming championships in early 2023.
