British Masters Swimming Champs 2017

Hello troops!! Welcome to a cheeky little 2nd edition of June’s Chinwag…. A wee update on how the British Champs went for the team!! 😁

Aberdeen was the place to be last weekend, with the British Masters Swimming Championships being held in the amazing facilities at The Aberdeen Sports Village. Five of our awesome swimmers made the journey up north to take part in the competition over the 3 days. 

Friday saw Trudy take on the 1500m freestyle and she did so in style with a cracker of a pb!! Andrew and Ashleigh took on the 100m backstroke, no PBs to be found there however Andrew did find himself in second place brining home some silverware! The evening session saw 2 outstanding performance from our Kyran in his 50m breaststroke and 200m IM which saw him sealing 3rd place in both!! 

The 2nd day of racing saw Graeme Hunter get involved in the action, he took part in the 100m free, 50m free and the  50m fly, in which he picked up a silver and a bronze medal!! 

More magnificent performances came from Trudy in her 400m free, a wee PB from Ashleigh in her 50m back and 50m fly, Andrews fabby time in his 100m free and Kyran’s silver medal came in his 100m breast!! 

By the end of day 3 we had a knackered Trudy and Andrew, who had just completed their 800m free and an awesome combination of around 5 PBs and a fantastic 7 medals for the Perth bunch!! 

For those of you who enjoy fishing, there was an outstanding catch for Andrew in the pool! πŸ˜‚ He managed to hook himself an athlete using banana as bait… Don’t believe me? Check out the photo evidence coming up!!
