Eighteen Fins’ swimmers were in action last Sunday at the Michael Woods centre, Glenrothes, where they competed, very successfully, in the Fife Regional Time Trials. The swimmers competed in fifty-five swims where they recoded thirty-nine PBs and achieved 19 – 1st, 8 – 2nd, 6 – 3rd, and a further 14 – top six placings. The swimmers competed in the 100m four individual strokes plus a 200m individual medley, plus the addition, from last weekend, of a 100m individual medley and a 200m and 400m freestyle. Four of the swimmers from last weekend were only eligible to compete in the additional events.
Fins’ top swimmer was 15 year old Mark Scott who had three wins, all PBs, but his 200m Freestyle time of 1min. 58.81 seconds was exceptional and was almost four seconds ahead of the second place swimmer. Mark also won the 100m individual medley and the 400m Freestyle where he recorded one of the largest PBs, reducing his previous time by 20.39 seconds.
