Thank yo to Jeff for the written up:
1) We had a great holiday/gala in Palma. The weather wasn’t as good as last year, in fact it poured with rain on Friday, but it was two weeks earlier than last year! There were 30 from Aer Lingus and another 30 from Sundays Well/Cork/Sandycove Island so plenty of Irish support. The Sunday session finished in time for a very long lunch with more than enough booze for all of us.
Results are here. I entered the “Complete Swimmer” competition where they add the times from the four fifty’s and the 100 IM. Unusually there were 5 or 6 swimmers in my age group (70 -74) and the winner set three European records!! I was last!!!!
2) While we were looking for the sun in Palma another team were in Sheffield at the British Masters. Dymphna Morris put together the following results. She reckons there were 16 Golds 5 Silvers, 5 Bronzes and 14 Irish records (STR). Thanks Dymphna
3) The LEN Top Ten Rankings are out http://www.len.eu/records/masters/2015.aspx#. There are a few errors which I hope LEN will sort out (Ladies S/C missing and a few names wrong (I finally got a mention — by mistake!!))
I’ve put together the rankings as I think they should be. Well done guys!
4) Here’s the latest Munster Records.
