The last weekend in October, 22 swimmers from Nottingham Leander Masters descended on the Swim England Masters (25m) Championships 2019, held at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.

In a nutshell, awesome swims all round! We had:

  • 16 podium finishes:
    • 2 Individual Golds
    • 3 Relay Golds
  • 2 British Records (see below)
  • 7 Leander Masters Records

Mike Brett collected most bling with 7 medals!

Clearly, it wasn’t all about medals and PBs – we had some brilliant, gutsy swims, too!

The 4 x 200 Freestyle Team of Carl Shaw, Dave Fletcher, Andi Manley and Alex Thurston broke the British record for a team with a combined age over 160 years.   What is more, Carl broke the individual 200m Free record on the first leg.
