Chesterfield Swimming Club seal 14 medals at British Masters event

Chesterfield Swimming Club’s Masters Squad put on an amazing performance at the recent British Masters Short Course Championships in Sheffield.

The event, staged at the city’s Ponds Forge complex, saw the club seal a haul of 14 medals including four golds, four silvers and six bronzes including 29 top-ten finishes.

They particularly stole the show in the team relays, being crowned British Champions in both the men’s 200m freestye relay and the mixed 400m medley relay.

Jack Chambers, Masters Squad coach and gold medal swimmer said: “The CSC Masters squad goes from strength to strength and each competition they continue to deliver an even better performance.

“We hope to continue to build on our successes as we prepare for the LEN European Championships in London 2016.

“Swimming is such a fantastic sport not just for our younger swimmers but also our growing team of adult swimmers.”

Ruth Mountford, Masters Swimmer, said: “I’ve been swimming competitively since the age of 12.

“I was never the best but swam for fun and the social side.

“I recently started swimming again with CSC Masters squad and at this competition won a National Gold medal, which feels amazing.”

In addition to the successful Masters programme Chesterfield Swimming Club also delivers a highly successful junior learn to swim and competitive programme.

The club also provides a high quality teaching environment in its School of Splash Learn to Swim programme and joint partnership with Chesterfield Borough Council in ‘Swim Chesterfield’.
