Report from Michelle Lester
The Mini MAC’s were in action again this weekend, this time at Burntwood Aquathlon held on 5th November at Burntwood Leisure Centre.
A very cold start, with intermittent rain showers didn’t deter this group of hardy youngsters. Some may see it as a crazy hobby; swimming in a warm pool followed by a run round a field in their wet swim kit, but these kids just love it as it combines all their favourite pastimes.
First up was the TS1, where they have to swim 150m (6 lengths) and ran 1500m. Caitlin McCloy had a superb first aquathlon finishing in a time of 12 mins 38 seconds. Freya Lester also took part, finishing 2nd girl, in a time of 10.27 min. The overall winner was Scarlett Williams in a time of 9.50min.
Next up was the TS2, representing MAC was Matthew Foreman, Isabelle Lester, Jess & Lauren Lindridge. They had to swim 250m (10 Lengths) 2000m Run. The overall winner was Nathan Walker in 14.08. 1st Girl was awarded jointly to Isabelle Lester (14.11) & Jess Lindridge (14.25) (Isabelle swam 2 extra lengths, so time adjusted) and 3rd Girl to sister Lauren Lindridge (15.00). Matthew Foreman (15.33)
