Well done to Penguins who swam at the Middlesex Masters on Sunday. Everyone swam amazingly and we were by far and away the best cheering team of the meet!
Janusz Kordonski, competing in the men’s 45-49 age group, brought home gold in the 50m breast, silver in the 200m free, and bronze in the 50m fly, 50 free and 100m IM.
Jonathan Campbell (30-34 years) won bronze in the 200m free and Kim Brinkman (25-29 years) won bronze in the 50m breast.
Matt McQuillan (40-44 years) took bronze in the 50m breast, 100m IM and 50m fly.
Pierre Coutin (50-54 years) defended his title with gold in the 50m breast, also winning the 50m fly and taking silver in the 50m free.
John Barnes (55-59 years) took gold in the 50m back and silver in the 50m free.
In the team relays we won 3 silver and one bronze.
James Spencer, Andrew March, David Fallon, Montserrat Verdugo-Sanchez, Lisa Williams, Edwina Wardell and Steve Baker also had strong swims in their individual and team races.
With only 4 ladies competing, the Women’s team ranked 9th overall while the men’s contingent of 9 swimmers placed 7th. Special motivational thanks to our new
mascot, Stu the Penguin (no relation to Stu Bell).
Overall for the day the Penguins ranked 7th out of the 17 teams. Full results coming soon.
