Exmouth Masters Swimmers at South West Region Masters Championships

Four swimmers from Exmouth Masters travelled to Weston Super Mare on Sunday to compete in the Swim England South West Region Masters Championships.

Everyone did really well. Peter Gilpin broke the Welsh Record in the 50m Freestyle in a time of 29.67.

Ian Lang just back from swimming marathon distance swims in the Lake District quickly adjusted to short course and achieved times which will put him in a good position for the National Masters Championships at the end of October. The highlight being a 2:50.80 in the 200m breaststroke.

Louise Kathro beat her target times to win her age group in the 50, 100, and 200m freestyle events and is also looking forward to the Nationals at the end of October.

Bill Letch swam impressively as ever winning his four events; when these times had been age adjusted Bill was the fastest swimmer at the meet in all four events. The points gained from these swims place Bill in the top ten of this year’s men’s National Decathlon Competition.
