On Saturday 20th June, several of our Masters ‘elite’ took part in the Great East swim, held at Alton Water. 654 swimmers took part in the 1 mile race and our Team did us proud! Matt Aldous Horne finished 2nd overall in a time of 20 mins. Only National 200m butterfly swimmer Alex Proffit of West Suffolk could beat him. BSSC’s butterfly maestro Lizzie Bellinger proved her versatility with a top 20 overall finish, achieving a time of 23mins, 21 seconds. She was the 5th woman finisher overall too. Training partners Kris Taylor and Jerry Grover both swam extremely well too and both finished highly in the field. Kris was able to show that he doesn’t need a pull buoy to swim fast as he finished 63rd overall in a time of 26 mins, 27 seconds. Jerry fought to a fantastic 112th place finish in a time of 29 minutes exactly. Excellent swimming once again guys!
