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.

Mollie Fisher added to the record tally breaking two of her own records.  She knocked a huge 36 seconds from the 1500m freestyle time she had previously set in January this year with a time of 17:14.61.  She also broke the 200m freestyle record that she had held for three years with an improved time of 2:05.70.

Well done again to both our captains!
