National Success Away From The Pool

Congratulations to Development Squad Coach, Dave Wright, on winning a Bronze Medal at the English National Masters Open Water Championships.

Dave is no stranger to competing over the longer or more arduous distance events in the pool, be it a 200m Butterfly, a 400m IM, or the occasional 1500m Freestyle. Having earned a Bronze in the East Region’s 5k earlier in the summer, Dave’s success on this occasion came in a shorter distance, the 3k.

Bronze Medal Winner: Dave Wright

Alice Pinney meanwhile finished in 4th place in the Ladies 18-24 years’ 5k race in what has been a remarkable year for Alice. Prior to joining Team Luton, Alice had previously only swum competitively with her school. Since competing for the first time in Seniors’ competitions back in February, Alice has qualified to swim in 7 events at the National Masters at the end of October. She will be joining Dave and others from our Masters squad for what is traditionally their main “end of season” competition.
