Masters Open Meet 20/21 January 2017

Carlisle Aquatics Masters Meet 20/21 January 2017.

The Masters Meet this year saw, subject to ratification, one European, 6 British, 1 Scottish and 13 Cumbrian records broken. This was quite a feat for an entry of about 80 swimmers which was similar to last year.

Graham Pearson, A Squad Coach, broke the British record for the 100 Breaststroke and narrowly missed out in the 200. He will just have to train harder!

The event went off without a hitch and the feedback from travelling swimmers about the meet was very positive. Thanks go to the organisers Vanessa Foster, Rebecca Chaffer and Mike Scales, the Aquatics Committee, officials and timekeepers – especially Sophie Huggon, Freya Scales and Robert Huggon who gave up Friday evening and Saturday to get very wet from some amazing masters style starting and finishing!

The evening presentation and meal was at the Venue and thanks also need to go to Paul Gibson for his singing and guitar playing.
