Sunday started with Leona winning gold in the 400 IM.

Heat 7 lanes 1, 2 and 3 was the place to watch for the 100 free. Colin, Mark and Dean head to head.   Mark won, Dean 2nd, with Colin picking up age group Gold.  Rob also picked up a silver from an earlier heat.

50 back.  Pete and Colin took Gold and Silver respectively.

200 free.   Colin a tired looking Bronze.

Now then.  Revenge time.  100 breast.   James vs Dean vs Rob.    Rob DQd on a Gold winning swim. (Non symmetrical turn !?!).  No narrow margins this time, with Dean winning by over 4 seconds to take a Silver.

50 fly.   Pete & Mark collected Gold and Bronze respectively.

To finish the weekend, and probably the swimmers too, the 200 IM head to head.  Dean lane 4.   James lane 3.  Colin lane 2.   At least Dean had a good swim winning Gold.  James and Colin somehow picked up Silver and Bronze for “warm down pace” swims.  Mark, the fastest of the Leander swimmers collected Bronze from an different heat.
