Scottish Masters Championships

Twelve masters swimmers from the club competed in the above competition in April 2012.

There were 42 clubs competing and the Inverness team came 4th overall - extremely good when you consider they were swimming against much larger clubs from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen among others.

A total of 44 individual and 4 relay medals were brought home. The following swimmers all won medals in their age group.

Nancy Scott deserves a special mention and congratulations for breaking 5 Scottish records in her age group. Barry Homer also performed very well by winning all of the butterfly events in his age group.

Trev Johnson and Liezel Boshoff were competing in a Masters event for the first time - well done to them both.
