At the recent Midland Masters’ swimming championships at Leamington Spa 7 CABSC swimmers competed, and whilst everyone swam well, 2 swimmers had particularly noteworthy competitions - Christine Gillard won 5 medals including 3 golds in the 100m and 200m Butterfly, plus the 50m FC. Jim Kearney won 5 golds in the 100m IM, and Backstroke, plus the 50m Fly, Back and FC.
Both of Jim’s backstroke events were East Midland records for his age group, and whilst they were already his records to break it was his recent focus on a strong underwater phase and excellent turns that made that extra difference this year - Younger swimmers take note!
Other medal winners were Pete Stephenson (3rd in 400 IM) and Mark Patterson (2nd 50m Fly).
We hope to have many equally successful swims at the upcoming CABSC Masters’ Open Meet. Well done to all our swimmers.
