City of Bradford Swimming Club had two representatives at the Yorkshire Swimming Association’s annual Masters Championships at Scarborough Indoor Pool.

Chris Brown outpaced his rivals in the 60-64 years' age group to win four county titles in the 50m and 100m backstroke, 50m butterfly and 100m individual medley.

However, his outstanding swim was in the 100m backstroke, in which he broke the British record in a time of 1.10.64.

Steve Eddison showed his versatility when he came home with a silver medal in the 60-64 years' 200m individual medley and also claimed gold in the 200m freestyle.

Both swimmers train with Bradford Aquatics Development Programme.

A small squad of City of Bradford Swimming Club's National Potential squad members, who train under the guidance of Bradford Council Leisure Service’s senior coach Andy Pearce, travelled to Sunderland Aquatic Centre to compete in the ASA North East Region Youth and Senior Championships.

Time is running out for qualification for this year's National Championships, and medals were hard to come by.

Joanna Gledhill was the squad’s only medallist. She claimed her first North East Region medal in the girls' youth 50 metres backstroke in a time of 32.51sec.

She also finished ninth in the 100m event and tenth in the 50m breaststroke.

Top-twenty places went to James Dawson, Josh Walker, Josh Zenner, Jordan Tate, Lucy Ward, and the boys' youth 400m medley team of Walker, Dawson, Zenner and James Blaby.
