Fritton Big Swim 2018

A glorious summer of regional outdoor swimming came to an end with this year’s Fritton Big Swim at Fritton Lake. Harry Crisp from EAST set the pace winning the Triple swim competition with overall wins in the 3k (43.58) and 1.5k (21.14) and third place in the 5k (1.10.47) for an overall time of 2.15.59. David Boyce won the ‘veteran’ age group category in the 5k coming in at 1.20.31 and seventh overall. Check out the bling below:

Day Time Coach Change
Tuesday 9pm to 10pm Josh 1 hour pool time instead of 45 minutes
Thursday 6.00am to 7.30am Swan Coach Slight change to time – we still share this session with Swan
Friday 9pm to 10pm Josh New pool time

Results for Eastern regional open water championships 2018

8 EAST swimmers took part in the Eastern regional open water champs on a hot Sunday at Whitlingham Broad.

Four swimmers took part in the 3k event with David Boyce and Ray Kirby coming 2nd and 3rd in the 40-49 male age group while Phill won bronze in a very competitive 50-59 age group. Josie put in another solid swim in the women’s race winning the age group gold although the field was a little sparse! Three swimmers swam the later 2k event with Jon G having a great swim to win silver in the men’s 50-59 event while Emmeline and Jane Pye both claimed gold in the women’s race for the 30-34 and 50-59 age groups respectively. Harry C was the only EAST competitor in the final race of the day, the 5k although he was swimming under the Great Yarmouth flag for the day. He rounded off a successful day with bronze in the very competitive 20-24 age group. Full results in the link below:

Results from British Masters Championships 2018

Five EAST swimmers made it down to Plymouth for this year’s British Masters and did the club proud with some fantastic swims. Medal count was 12 golds, 3 silver and 4 bronze, which is amazing given that there were only five swimmers. Leading the way were Catherine, Debbie and Pat who between them won all the club’s 12 golds with Debbie and Pat coming home first in every race they entered. The men didn’t do to badly either with Chris and Nick picking up two and three medals respectively.
