Musselburgh Amatuer Swimming Club athletes had a strong weekend at the East District Championships (Round 2) at Royal Commonwealth Pool over the weekend.

The gala was the first long course event of the season, and the first time competing in a 50m pool for a few of our swimmers, so an excellent experience all round. A challenging weekend for everyone but certainly rewarding! A list of all the Musselburgh finalists can...
