SWIMMING: Medals in Montreal for Elaine


Three golds and four silvers in 70-74 age group

Rugby’s Elaine Bromwich, who competes under Birmingham Masters SC in 70-74 age group, has had two big swimming meets in a month. The first was in Montreal, Canada competing in the Canadian short course Masters where she finished with three golds and four silvers.

First places came in 1500m, 80 m, 400m freestyle and second 20 m freestyle all in good times. Supporting a knee injury meant she could only manage to finish second in the three breaststroke events, the 200m, 100m and 50m.

The other meet was the Great Britain Long Course Masters at Manchester. Elaine came away with eight silvers: 800m, 400m, 200m, 100m, 50m freestyle, also 200m, 100m, 50m breaststroke.
