African Senior Swimming Championships

Back in action at the Club Championships yesterday was Akshay Shah who has recently returned from South Africa where he competed in the African Senior Swimming Championships. In these championships Akshay swam in the 50m, 100m, and 200m backstroke and, despite the altitude in Jo'burg (1700m) causing breathing problems, produced PBs in both the 50 back and the 200 back - in the 200m he also qualified for the final. Barnet Copthall must have felt very small and very cold by comparison to the Ellis Park venue.
