Thursday’s news from the Europeans

The final day of relays saw nearly the whole Spencer team competing in the Mixed 4×50 freestyle teams, with some exciting racing.

The victorious 320+ medley team from Tuesday, Grace, Muriel, Tony and Geoff almost had an identical swim on the freestyle, with only Tony switching from fly to front crawl. This made for a much closer race, with Geoff having to pull out the stops on the last 50 to overhaul both Moscow Masters and LSK Heindl from Austria to nail the gold.

At the other end of the scale, Jason led the 200+ team out with a blistering 23.80 to give us a 3.6 second lead. As the age of the swimmers increased (Abba, Amanda, Godfrey) so the lead decreased, but the team were very happy with their 7th place.

Other results from Thursday:

200 back – Grace 2nd, Amanda 2nd, Godfrey 9th

50 fly – Abba 6th in a PB, Steve 22nd

100 free – Abba 5th in another PB, Suzanne 18th, Geoff 5th, Peter 14th, Steve 23rd

240+ Mixed Free – Suzanne, Di, Peter, Steve 11th
