For many the Swim England Nationals in October is the end of the competitive year for our Masters & Seniors. Not so for Alex Mason, Sam Bradley & Tom Lambert who have all won further accolades.
At the Swim Wales Masters Short Course Championships, held in Newport, Alex, aged 22, won all three of his events in the 18 – 24 years’ age group. A time of 32.63 seconds in the 50m Breaststroke saw him touch half a second ahead of the second placed swimmer. Alex’s time of 1:12.12 in his 100m Breaststroke secured him a more comfortable winning margin of over two seconds.
A third Gold medal came from Alex’s 200m Backstroke. His time of 2:15.82 was a Masters’ personal best time, as was his 50m Breaststroke.
Away from the national stage, Sam Bradley has collected his first Beds County Masters record. He finished 3rd in the 25 – 29 Years’ Barnet Masters 1500m Freestyle in a time of 21:31.21.
Tom Lambert meanwhile won all six of his 18 – 24 years’ events at the Etwall Masters meet in Derbyshire. Earning the Club valuable team points for the GB Decathlon competition, all of Tom’s swims were personal bests since returning to competitive swimming this year.
