Newmarket Masters Meets – 23rd April 2022

On Saturday 23rd April in Newmarket, Sian MacDonald and daughter Ellie teamed up alongside Mark Strakosch at the Masters meet.

Mark Strakosch started things rolling with the 400m Free where, returning from injury he picked up the silver medal in 5:27.46 before following things up with Gold in the 50m Back with 39.36 and silver in the 200m IM, stopping the clock at 3:06.65. In his final two events, the 100m Back and 50m Breast he improved his entry times to take Gold in the Back (1:24.06, improving his entry time by 2.65 seconds) and 4th in the Breast with 45.45, just over a second inside his entry time.

Both Sian and Ellie were entered in the 100m & 50m Breaststroke events plus the 100m Free. Starting with the longer Breaststroke event, both came away with Gold medals, Sian clocking 1:41.72 and Ellie 1:23.33.

They then replicated their Gold medals in the 50m races with Sian going 46.15 and Ellie 38.66 before Sian posted possibly her best swim of the meet in the 100m Free with 1:21.97, some 3 seconds faster than she had entered for a third consecutive Gold, while Ellie was pleased with silver in 1:05.15.
