As we approach the half way point at this year's world Masters swimming champs in South Korea, Otters are gathering a bounty of medals to bring home.
Hayley Davis (35-39) has medalled in all her events so far, with three silvers in the 3km Open Water (42:21), 800m Freestyle (10:02.46 Otter Record) and 200m Backstroke (2:31.96 Otter Record), and a fantastic gold in the 400m IM (5:31.60). Pip Bennett (35-39) is bringing home two bronze medals for the 3km Open Water (42:12) and 800m Freestyle (9:46.81).
Steve Braine (65-69), swimming under a Mid Sussex Marlins flag (but we'll forgive him) won a bronze in the blue ribbon 100m Freestyle (1:07.31) and a silver in the 50m Butterfly (31.41). As well as medals, they're winning a cuddly Otter - the championships mascot!
Top 10 placings have also been achieved by Wade Rimbach (35-39), 200m Backstroke (2:25.58 Otter Record); and Catherine Demont (30-34), 100m Freestyle (1:02.95), 200m Freestyle (2:18.58). Wade also broke the Otter Record in the 400m IM (5:13.55).
Other Otters competing are Dontony Gill-Nasadi, Fraser Peh, Caspar Stops, Enrico Hahn and Michael Amos,
Congrats everyone, it’s great to be able to keep track of how you’re doing, and keep swimming fast!
