Sutton-In-Ashfield Swimming Club
Sutton-in-Ashfield Swimming Club wishes Paralympic Gold Medalist and Honorary Life-time member Sam Hynd the best of fortune following the announcement of his retirement from competitive swimming and for his new career with British Gas.
Good Luck to all Sutton swimmers who will be competing at the Notts ASA County Championships during March 2014.
National Champion is Crowned
Sutton Swimming Club's Ruslans Golubs competed in the Latvian Winter National Short Course Championships on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd February 2014.
14yr old Ruslans enjoyed tremendous success considering that all events were Open Age Group winners. Ruslans swam a massive Personal Best time in the 800m Freestyle event of 8 minutes 42.85 seconds to be crowned the overall National Champion.
Ruslans also took a Silver medal in the 400m Individual Medley event with another PB of 4 minutes 43.92 seconds.
To complete the full set of medals Ruslans also won a Bronze medal for his efforts in the 200m Butterfly event in a time of 2.14.91.
Ruslans swam every event in his Sutton Swimming Club cap which resulted in the Clubs chairman receiving an e-mail enquiry about how to join the Club from a Latvian based swimmer who had seen Ruslans perform and wanted to join his Club.
All at Sutton SC are proud of Ruslans who is pictured with his 3 medals.
