Cally Masters were out in force at the Middlesex Masters Swimming Gala held at Barnet Copthall Pool last weekend.
Everyone swam well and Cally Masters achieved a well-deserved overall second place. Cally excelled in the relays in which all members of the team took part. These were a fun but gruelling set of 24 different events, all completed in less than an hour!
Cally’s Swimmer of the meet was Cath in the 65-69 years age group, who struck gold in all 6 of the individual events, scoring a maximum 36 points for the club. Cath’s 50 metres butterfly was an outstanding swim. In the men’s competition, Gary (26 points) and Richard (25 points) were Cally’s top swimmers. Both men swam in the 60-64 years age group and the competition between the two was greater than with the rest of the field in the freestyle events. Richard triumphed in the longer 200 metres and Gary in the sprint 50 metres. A special mention goes to Ingrid and Bethan who were competing in their first gala for Cally Masters. Bethan won gold in the 50 metres freestyle and 50 metres butterfly in her age group (30-34 years).
