The Beast from the East can't stop these Otters

The crazy weather felt by the UK unfortunately interfered with many swimmers' plans to head to South Coast of Wales for the annual Welsh Masters Championships on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd March, 2018. This meet is great long-course preparation ahead of the British National Championships in June, and always proves popular with swimmers from around the UK. However, just four Otters (David Adamson, Dontony Gill-Nasadi, Fraser Peh & Simon Williams) managed to catch their trains and make their way over to the 50m national pool in Swansea to shine.

All in all, some very good swims with decent times seem by the team, with all four gentlemen achieving at least one gold or silver medal-winning position.

David Adamson & Fraser Peh's 200m individual medley was hotly contested, with Dave taking Fraser on the freestyle lap to finish in an Otter 1-2. Being of two different age groups, both Otters being able to take home 1st place and gold medals.

Both Dontony Gill-Nasadi & Simon Williams took home silver medals in their respective age categories for their performances in the men's 50m freestyle.

Here's to hoping for better travel conditions next year, and a full Otter team able to repeat these great performances!
