Medal rush for Spencer

K2 Crawley — 22/23 January 2022

A group of Spencer swimmers braved the first competition of the year, facing down K2 Crawley for the South East Regional long course Masters champs.

Despite losing our long course training pool last year at Crystal Palace, there were some amazing performances. We brought home nearly 40 medals and the incredible Amanda Heath marked her move into the 65/69 age group by smashing British and World records.

We were pleased to be joined by some of our ‘out of towners’ including Peter who traveled from Cornwall.

Other highlights included a gold in the men’s 240+ 4x50m Free relay and a nail-biting finish in the women’s 72+ 4x50m IM relay to pip Tunbridge Wells to the win.
