Matlock Air Training Corps cadet Oliver Wilkes has once again led his squadron to swimming glory.

The talented 16-year-old from Matlock and teammates from 140(Matlock) Squadron competed in the Trent Wing Annual Swimming competition.

Reprising his medal-winning performance of a year ago, he came away with gold medals in the 100 metres backstroke and individual medley races, plus a silver medal in the 50 metres butterfly.

Oliver said: “It’s great to represent the squadron at a Wing competition and to bring back medals!”

Oliver will now go on to represent Trent Wing at the Regional Competition in the near future.

Matlock Air Cadets meet at Hurst Rise, Matlock, every Monday and Wednesday between 6.45pm and 9pm. For more on the group’s activities, go to www.140matlockatc.co.uk
