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.
