Maidenhead Masters Series Event

 

Maidenhead ASC held its first Masters Series event on Saturday 16th March - this was to enable many Masters to achieve qualifying times for British Championships and Nationals later in the year.

WDSC was represented by 7 swimmers who decided to challenge themselves in a variety of ways: Matt CJ swam all 8 events held in this event, Greg DT swam in 7, Caroline entered events she has not done in years, Pip and John entered events they would never normally do, and Ami and Jo were trying to get near their PBs during a period of hard training!

 

The most anticipated event was the Mens 200 breaststroke where Matt CJ and John were among not to get lapped by Greg who was swimming between them. That didn’t happen (just!) and it was closely fought to the end by Matt and John.

 

Everyone rose to the challenges we set ourselves - 5 club records were achieved, and Matt survived to collect 8 medals.

 

As ever team spirit was high and we went out for a meal to celebrate out achievements.

Many thanks as always Dave who was there to encourage and cheer us on.
