Herts Masters Competition 2017

At the Herts Masters at The Venue, Borehamwood, 5 masters (Ellie MacDonald, Sian MacDonald, Tracy Van Deventer, Mark Strakosch and Tom Strakosch)  came away loaded with medals.

Tracy managed a comeback pb time in her 50m free with 32.45 (gold) & 50 fly with 35.49 (gold) as well as pbs and silver medals in the 100m IM and 50m Back.

Ellie MacDonald took Gold in her 50m Breast & Fly and silver in the 50m Free.

Sian MacDonald was a triple gold winner in the 100m IM, 50m Breast and 50m Free.

Mark Strakosch took 3 Golds (IM, Back & Fly) and 2 silvers (Breast & Free). His Free of 31.58 was his second best 50m free time in the last 2 years, showing that even at 56 years old he has no intention of slowing down.

Tom Strakosch took his gold in the 50m Back with silvers in the medley, breast & free and bronze in the fly.

To cap a fun packed evening, the Strakosch boys, Van Deventer and Sian MacDonald combined for 6th in the mixed 4 x 25m Medley relay.


The results across both meets evidence just how broadly based the club now is from National medallists to novice swimmers and masters to 9 year olds all competing at their own level and with a sense of enjoyment and achievement.
