Amanda doubles up to break two British records on way to national titles

Amanda Heath set two new British best times as eight records fell during the second session of day one at the Swim England Masters National Championships.

Spencer swimmer Heath broke her existing record in the 60-64 Years 100m Breaststroke as she clocked 1:26.85 before storming to victory in the 400m Individual Medley in a time of 6:13.06.

She said: “I broke the 100m Breast, which was my record that I’ve broken and then I broke the 400m IM by just a touch.

“I set my previous 100m Breaststroke record two years ago so I’m absolutely delighted that I’m still in good shape now I’m in the middle of the age group.

“I’m still motivated so it will be a good target to aim for again next year.

“I’m just absolutely delighted – honestly I could go home now. Whatever I do for the rest of the weekend is a bonus really.”

Mark triumphs in new best

Mark Reynolds

Mark Reynolds was victorious by 17.34 seconds on his way to a new British best in the Men’s 55-59 Years 400m Individual Medley – as he competed in the event for only the second time in 40 years.

He clocked 5:07.81 to finish comfortably clear of Stroud’s Sean Kinsey (5:25.15) and Newcastle’s Kevin Smith (5:34.85).

He said: “That was a good time.

“This year is only the second time I’ve done it [400m Medley] in 40 years. I did it as a 16-year-old and then I did it three months ago so that was really positive.

“I missed the record by two-tenths in the summer so all the team said I had to do it – that’s the reason I entered.

“I haven’t done much training for it because the more I train on Medley the worse it gets, so I stayed off it!”

Daniel Cotton also set a record-breaking time in the 45-49 Years age group.

He was the only man in the age group to finish under five minutes as he clocked and impressive 4:44.04.

Three records tumbled in the Women’s 100m Breaststroke races.

Teddington’s Georgina Heyn finished in 1:11.30 in the 35-39 Years, Sally Shields’s time of 1:31.53 was a new best in the 65-69 age group, while Diane Ford was almost 36 seconds clear of the field as she triumphed in the 75-79 category in 1:39.90.

In the Men’s 50m Backstroke, Brian Hunt, of RTW Masters, also set a new British best time of 36.65 in the 70-74 Years event.
