Four Cheddar Kingfishers Swimmers from the Social and Masters Squad competed in the Royal Navy Masters Open meet at Millfield in Street on the 27th February 2022, showing their younger team members exactly how it should be done, winning medals and PBs all round. Sarah Ayling, Richard Forrester, Louisa Slingsby and Head Coach, Jeff Hill all swam fast races and winning points for their team. Ayling swam 50m Free and 50m Breast in which she finished 5th and 4th respectively. Forrester had a busy day swimming the 50m Breast, 50m Free and the long 100m Breast finishing 4th. Assistant team coach Slingsby finished 3rd in both the tough races of the 100m IM and 200m Free, and to top it all finished 1st in the 100m Free. Two more 1st places were won by Hill in the Mens 50m Free and 50m Fly, and swam a 2nd in the Mixed 200m Free. It was a great day of swimming for these four members of Cheddar Kingfishers Swimming Club.
