Tuesday Another top ten place for Georgie who finished 6th in 400 ind medley out of 15 swimmers in the 70-74 age group. Rachael: another best time by over a second in the 200 freestyle saw Rachael placed 16th out of 70 in her age group.
Only one Barnet Copthall swimmer yesterday, that was Freddie Cornwell who swam in the 50 Back. This is an open event (ie all ages competing together) so, not surprisingly, the top places were dominated by swimmers in their twenties and late teens. Freddie was however, with a long course PB of 28.19, the 3rd fastest 15 year old.
Some serious problems with electronic timing this morning meant the women's pool seriously overran again and the results have only just been confirmed in the website! Swimmers are not very happy on the FINA Facebook pages. It doesn't need too much to set the swimmers off moaning but this time, they do have a case.
The story so far ..... Our intrepid three, Georgie Hamilton, Rachael Coleman and Ian Woollard, together with support team, Jeanette Squires, have crossed the Atlantic to fly the flag for Barnet Copthall in Montreal.
