Luke breaks his own record at British Championships

Luke Booth made a great start to Metro’s representation at this Summer’s National Championships by breaking his own record in the 1500m freestyle at the British Championships being held at Ponds Forge.  On July 22nd, he swam a time of 16:23.47 beating his previous time by over 6 seconds.  Luke also swam the 400m freestyle the following day and will compete again at the English Nationals during August.

Good luck to Luke and all Metro swimmers.

Jack’s Open Water Gold

As a result of his performances at 1500m in the pool, Jack Finnie was recently selected to represent the NE region in Open Water events.

He has trained with the squad recently in Sunderland and more closer to home at Manvers Lake.

Last weekend saw him compete at the NW/NE Regional Championships where he achieved the gold medal in the 3000m.

Well done to Jack and we wish him well for the national competition at Thrybergh next month.

We’ve also added a new club record for this with Jack being the first to achieve 🙂
