The “John Harrison Centenary” Surrey Masters Championships took place at Surrey Sports Park on Saturday 7th June 2014. Once again it was a privilege to be able to use this great facility and many thanks to Luigi Mansi of SSP and his team for their hard work and support, during the day and in the run up to the meet.
And what a day it was! John gave his all in the 50 back but was unable to take back his World 50 Backstroke record. However we were delighted to welcome back 2012 Olympian Marco Loughran who served up a 24.17 50m backstroke to smash the existing World 25-29 Record. Mike Hodgson is usually good for a record at most meets he attends and, sure enough, he delivered with a 1:01.27 100m IM British Record. Both records are, of course, subject to ratification.
Over 160 swimmers competed this year and all races were fought fiercely, but conducted with the friendly spirit that typifies Masters Swimming and especially Surrey Masters.

Once again a great big thank you to all our Officials and Volunteers – I must mention Lyn Green, wife of James, who did such sterling work on the door with programmes and medals.
As ever, I truly value your support as competitors and will be delighted to have any feedback on what we can do better next year.
