Please note the third of the MAD Open Water swim meets, to be held in August at Derwent Gardens in Matlock Bath, has been moved to a week earlier to the 6th August.
I am sure you will all be thrilled to hear that Helen Thornhill has been selected to represent England, in the Mountain Running International Youth Cup, in Bulgaria later this month. Helen was selected after a number of recent amazing runs in fell race/mountain races throughout the country. Helen who swims in Club 3 and who regularly coaches Masters groups at the club, should be an inspiration to you all. I and no doubt all of you, wish her good luck in her International Debut.
Gary McCaffery Chief Coach

On Sunday MAD attended Eckington open meet, we had a brilliant day, with bags of medals, trophies and personal best swims, the gala was aimed at the majority of the club. There were no cut off times and no restrictions except for age. The best thing for us really was to see the younger end of the club attending Open meets, it builds so much experience and competitive sprit, that training or home galas can’t replicate.
Last weekend I swam for Derbyshire at Braunstone in the midland championships where I won both my racers.
50 breast in 36.42 and
50 fly in 29.22
making me top in the midlands and third in the country for my age lol.
