Gingerbreads snap up four for new season
Top masters swimmers from across the country showed the youngsters how it’s done at Grantham Swimming Club’s first ever open Masters Meet.Men and women aged between 18 and 70 travelled to the Meres Leisure Centre from as far away as Brighton and Southport.The oldest entrant was 70-year-old William Sampson.He was competing for the first time since the 1970s and tackled five events including 100m freestyle and 50 butterfly.Grantham Swimming Club secretary Zoe Lewis said: “It was great to see so many swimmers willing to travel from so far away to compete in our pool here at the Meres. “We’re lucky to have such great facilities here, including a pool with a movable floor, electronic timing and scoreboard and top-of-the range diving blocks. “We hope the swimmers enjoyed the experience.”Spot prizes were given out at random and there were awards for the top male and top female in each age group.Prizes included hats sponsored by Grantham Masters swimmer Marc Turnbull of GNAT UK.
