South East Masters LC Championships

At the other end of the swimming scale from Herts Counties, Zoe Doyle and Mark Strakosch journeyed to the K2 pool in Crawley for the South-East Masters long course championships. It was Doyle’s first long course experience but she was not fazed and came away with 2 silvers and a bronze from her 3 races. In the 100m free she posted 1:11.61, faster than her short course best and with a 32.81 second 50m Free she claimed another silver. Then, setting off with a first half of 6:33 in the 800m she finished strongly to record 13.12.46 for the bronze, some 20 seconds faster than her short course time.

Mark Strakosch was disappointed with his 10:44 for the 800m but this was just 8 seconds slower than his best for the silver medal.


A great weekend of competition across the ages for the club, well done to our Masters swimmers.
