Truro City Women's Young Swimming Team Smash The Senior County Record!
At the first weekend of the Cornwall ASA County Championships , the Truro City Swimming Clubs Women's Senior Relay team broke the 4 x 200m freestyle by an astonishing 12 seconds. Leading the women off were three fourteen year old swimmers, Josie Williams who swam a commanding first leg in 2.08.59; this was backed up by Kay de Courcy's 2.10.33 . This mean't that by the time Nicola Russell dived in to swim a strong third leg of 2.20.81 the team were already over 25 metres ahead of their closet rivals Bodmin. The last leg saw the Truro Girls Captain 15 year old Mesha Wardman close out the record with a 2.22.27. The team whose age is still well below the senior cutoff set the county championship record time of 9.02.15 beating the old record by over twelve seconds.
The men's senior team placed second in a time of 8.32.73 with the girls under thirteen team getting a third place with 10.26.50.
