Garioch Amateur Swimming Club’s David Smith took part in the British Masters and Senior Age Group Swimming Championships at the Wales National Pool in Swansea on June 13 to 15.
Over 700 swimmers aged between 18 -87 years, from all over Britain and also Europe took part in this National Open event. Competing in the 18-24 Age Group, David had 13 events over the three days and won Gold in the 200M fly; four Silvers in the 200 IM, 400 IM, 200 breast and 800M freestyle and one Bronze in the 1500M freestyle.
David also came fourth in three other events, attained one PB and finished in the top eight in all his other swims. It was a challenging group of swims after a long journey but a well run, enjoyable and friendly meet, and they even got the pronunciation of Garioch right!
