Sunday 10th October 2021 saw four BSSC Masters head to Newmarket Leisure Centre for the first Swim England East Region Masters Championships since 2019. Two of them had featured on the FINA World Masters Top 10 Rankings for 2020, even with limited swimming opportunities, so our expectations were high and they certainly delivered!
Eight swims resulted in an amazing eight gold medals! Eleanor Mason (18/24 Yrs) kicked off proceedings with gold in 400m Freestyle; Lizzie Bellinger (40/44 Yrs) won the 100m Butterfly & 100m IM; Pete Kelleway (60/64 Yrs) won the 50m Backstroke, 50m Freestyle & 100m IM; and Alyson Fordham (65/69 Yrs) won the 50m & 100m Freestyle. Alyson’s 50m freestyle time of 32.82 smashed the East Region record by 5 seconds and was just 0.4 seconds short of the British record. It’s great to see them in action again and we look forward to their next performances.
