Medals and Records for Masters at the Kent Champs
Our Masters team made their way to Medway Park on Sunday for the 2016 Kent Championships. What a day they had! All members of the team came home with medals which is outstanding. James Bowen - Bronze in 100 free and silver in 50 back. Emily Brown - Silver in 100 breastroke and Bronze in 100 IM. Nick Bunclark - Gold in 50 fly and Gold in the 100 Fly. Gina Charelton - Bronze in 100m breastroke and two fourth places in 100 and 50 free, all in PBs. Jack Cook - Bronze in the 100 free and Silver in the 50 free. Iain Jameson - Gold in 50 fly and Silver in the 100 fly. Kayleigh Knocker - Gold in 50 back, Gold in 50 free and Gold in 100 free. Steve Morris - Silver in the 50 fly and Bronze in the 100 free. Alex Spooner - Gold in the 100 fly, Gold in the 100 free, Gold in the 100 IM, Gold in 50 free and Gold in the 50 fly. Tracey Van Rooyen - Gold 50 back and Gold in 100m back with the Kent Masters Champs record, Gold in the 100 IM and Silver in the 50 Fly. We also entered some relays. One was a little dubious though having mistaken category AA to mean All Ages and not Seniors (18-25 year olds) we fielded a team with two swimmers over 25. Thankfully it wasn’t really an issue as no other club fielded an AA team so whilst we obviously got the Gold, being the only team in the pool, we didn’t take it away from a properly aged team. We only realised as the race was announced with our lead swimmer on the block. Obviously we pulled the team from the medley relay in the second session. Gold in Mixed AA 4x50m free. Silver in Mens 160+ 4x25 free. Silver in Mens 120+ 4x25m IM. Well done everyone.
