Open 800m record broken again

Male Club Captain Luke Booth again breaks his own long course record for the 800m freestyle.

His previous time was 8:37.30 and he finished his most recent swim at the Yorkshire Championships in Sheffield in a time of 8:34.21, picking up the gold medal along the way.

Well done Luke.

Ollie breaks a 10 year old record!

Oliver (Ollie) Davis-Tootill pulled out a fantastic swim in the 100m backstroke at the Yorkshire Championships last weekend with a time of 1:03.07. Not only did this beat his previous PB set just last month by 3 seconds, it also broke a club record that has stood for almost 10 years. This junior boys record was previously held by Robert Pearson with a time of 1:03.31 set in May 2013.

Many congratulations to Ollie for achieving his first club record – let’s hope it’s the first of many.
