CHRIS Brown and Sam Naylor City’s competing masters swimmers swam at the Yorkshire Swimming Association’s annual Championships held at John Charles Centre for Sport, Leeds recently.

Brown looked impressive when he claimed no less than three County titles in the 70/74 years age group. His wins came in his favoured events the 50m and 100m backstroke and 50m butterfly. It was however his time of 36.12 in the 50m backstroke which stole the limelight as it broke the British record in his age group.

Naylor swam four highly competitive races and also came home with a medal haul.

He claimed gold medals and County titles in the 18/24 years age group, 200m, 400m and 800m freestyle and a bronze in the shorter 100m event.

Brown and Naylor both train on the Bradford Aquatics Competition programme under the guidance of coaches Andy Pearce and Sarah Fisher. The City of Bradford Swimming Club is the competitive outlet for the Aquatics Competition programme.
