Our Sub-60 Set

As our swimmers get faster so does our list of those who’ve managed to go under a minute for 100M Fc. We started this list in 1998, 10 years after the club started, with swimmer Kevin Hare, who won the £20 prize the Head coach had put up for the first swimmer to break the sub 60 seconds. In the following 10 years Kevin was joined by a further 6 swimmers including the first female swimmer to join the group.

Fast forward more than another 10 years to the present day and they are joined by 13 more swimmers to bring the illustrious total to 20. In addition we now have 2 members who have gone sub one minute on a form (other than Fc) stroke – a feat that is sure to grow in numbers as the swimmers work and improve.
