He also went in the 50m backstroke, clocking 44.19secs, a PB but received a speeding ticket.

Sam set club records in the 13-year-old events, the 200m freestyle (2.29.75mins, PB), 200m IM (2.49.55mins, PB) and 50m butterfly (35.36secs, PB), receiving a speeding ticket in all three.

He also won the 100m butterfly in a PB of 1.24.94mins, while finishing second in both the 100m backstroke (1.23.39mins, PB) and 50m backstroke (38.83secs), setting club records in both.

Finally Ellie King swam at the Lincoln Vulcans Meet as she had entered to chase national qualifying times and only just missed them.

She also beat her best in the 100m freestyle with 1.00.81mins, a new club record, plus swum a new club record in the 100m backstroke (1.06.39mins, PB) and completed the 50m freestyle in 28.09secs.
