Masters swimming summer 2014 part 2

Big Swim, Nottingham 2014

A few weeks ago several Masters swimmers competed in the Big swim at Holme Pierrepont. There was a choice of 5000m, 3000m and 1500m, and we had swimmers in all 3 categories. Fliss Prior competed in the 5000m, and was the fastest women swimmer overall, having completed the course in 1hr 17mins. The picture shows Fliss receiving her prize as the winner.

In the 3000m both Sue Parker and Alie Patterson competed, and in the 1500m there was Chris Gillard, Karen Blakemore and Ed Parker (who swam it with his eldest daughter).There was a mass start for each event and for the 3000m and 5000m the swimmers completed 2 circuits, and after the first they had to climb out run along the pontoon and dive in to start the next circuit.

The whole event was well organised and it was a wonderfully hot day for all the spectators. Well done to all those who competed.

Masters Swimming Summer 2014

Alcatraz Open Water Swim

Rhys Hughes from the Masters' Squad recently swam from off Alcatraz Island to Aquatic Park in San Francisco on Sun 21st July as part of the Escape the Rock Duathlon. The water was 62F (16C)  and choppy with a cross current. There was no sign of sharks but a few seals on the way. The swim was a mile and a half and his time was 34m 45s. Carol (his wife) then did the 7 mile run and they came 3rd overall in the 'co-ed' (don't you love the american) relay category..

Junior gala series 2013-4

Our first Junior Gala 2013-4 series culminated on July 5th with a massive pool party and splendid tea (thanks to Jackie in the cafe) and an Olympic style medal ceremony. All of our youngsters showed marked improvements over the year, some scoring massive pb's which have really impressed and encouraged Mark and our coaches.

Our current Year 6 swimmers took part for the first and last time, as they will be too old to swim the 2014-5 series! So we wish them well as they move to BIG school!

Gold medals went to Matthew Cox and Noor Scothern; Tyler Moodley and Lewis Warner; Lottie Farley and James Cox; Lilly Cherry and Jamie Lodge; Ella Croft and Kris Moodley. Silver went to Arthur Dexter and Amelie Clayden; Maggie Briggs and Ben Curson; Becky Whittaker and Ryan Lang; Lottie Warsop and Will Parker; Hermione Blackwood and Will Halstead. Bronze went to Charlie Hopkinson; Mya Edwards and Ollie Wilson; Jenna Mariott and Tristan Teasdale; Amber Perkins and Seb Brett, Georgia Wilson and Fabio Medri.

The next series starts on September 28th and entry forms will be out at the end of August.

Thanks to all parents, officials and older swimmers who volunteered and so helped make these galas possible.

Squad moves Summer 2014

Mark wanted me to add a website message about the next Squad moves.

Some of you have already been told about promotion to the next squad after the summer break and a few selected swimmers have also been invited to attend an extra session to try-out the next squad. These moves and invites have been very carefully considered by the coaching team and have taken into account commitment to training, availability for galas, swim times and coaches reports over the last few weeks.

Some of you may be disappointed, but Mark wants everyone to know that results and performances following the summer break, including our Club Champs, will be seriously considered and the opportunity will be available to add more swimmers to these promotions and invites. So have a good holiday and return reinvigorated and prepared to work harder than ever and the rewards are there! So please enter the Club Champs and do as many events as you can to improve your times.

Happy Holidays, Kath
