Masters South East region long course gala – K2 Sports centre - 21-22nd January 2017

Written by RRSC. Posted in Masters News

Over the weekend of the 21 – 22nd January the Redhill & Reigate SC entered a range of races at the South East region Long Course Gala at the K2 Sports Centre outside Crawley. Being a South East Region – and one of the few Long Course (50m pool) – meets available, the competition came from far and wide, with some really eye watering times being recorded.

RRSC had the best turn out for a Masters event in ages, despite several swimmers needing to withdraw due to illness or injury (hopefully these swimmers will be mended in time for the Bracknell meet on the 4th of March!). Particularly noteworthy was the competition between Jonny Brankin and Dale Millar to enter the most races (including Jonny entering a 200m Butterfly race, with just a short rest before going out again on the 100 Butterfly.

In terms of medals with such tough competition the club did well with a good haul of bronze, silver and a few gold, of note Graham Allison's double gold haul!

As coach I must say I was impressed not just by the quality of swim put in by all of our team members, but also the improved starts and turn... sharp, sharp! Thank you also to our non-swimming supporters!
