In 2006, the president of MCASA has been our very own Ian Woollard. He will be hosting the annual President's dinner in a weeks time - there are a few tickets left for anyone who would like to attend. The after dinner speaker is masters swimmer, master blogger and published journalist (Swimming Times no less!) Joe Twyman which is surely worth the ticket price. Details below:
More gold medals for Barnet Copthall on the final day of the ASA masters short course. The first gold of the day went to Elaine Blower who won the 800 free (60-64yrs) in 12:26.11. Mark Reynolds won his third gold of the championships in the 40-44yrs 100 free finishing in 53.57.
Four more gold medals for Barnet Copthall masters in the second day of the ASA Masters short course championships at Ponds Forge.
Three of these were in the 50 free with Mike Fibbens winning the 35-39yrs age group in 24.13 (still no sign of Mark Foster!); Mark Reynolds (40-44yrs) coming first in a new GB record of 24.53 and Jim Hobsley taking gold in the 45-49yrs in 25.72. Later in the day, John Rittenhouse won the 200 back (45-49) in 2:27.39.
