Valentines Seniors and Masters Meet - 19 February 2017
On Sunday 19th February 2017 at Kingfisher Leisure Centre in Sudbury, Sudbury and District Swimming Club (AKA Sudbury Storms) held their annual Valentines Masters and Seniors Meet, which incorporates the Suffolk Masters Championships.
Over 500 swims were held during the day, with over 35 clubs attending. During the event many personal bests were achieved, and a number of East Region records were broken. Our own swimmers took part and were part of this fantastic success.
One of the most memorable swimmers was Donald MacFarlane, a member of West Norfolk Swimming Club, who celebrates his 88th birthday shortly. He took part in multiple events on the day, which many spectating could not have managed.
Our own British Record holder, Jean Appleby, was in action as well in 4 events on the day.
