ASA Club Suvey - Key findings for the East
At the beginning of 2014 the ASA released the Club findings from the National Club Survey. From these results we have collated the relevant information for our Region and included these in the following documents.
From the report we have produced an action plan to address some of the key issues raised.
World record for Masters star Zoe
ZOE Cray of teamipswich broke three British, two European and a world record in the 40/44 age group at the ASA East Region Open Masters & Senior Age Group Championships at Newmarket.
Her first success came in the morning session when her time of 1:07.03 in the 100m individual medley broke the British and European record.
Zoe just missed British records by a few hundredths of a second in the 50m butterfly and the 50m freestyle.
But when she stepped up to the mark for her favoured event, the 50m backstroke, the anticipation was high – and when her time of 29.84secs came up on the scoreboard, not only was it a British and European record, Zoe had taken 0.12secs off the world record.
Just for good measure, she then broke the British record for the 100m freestyle in her last swim of the day, recording a time of 59.39secs. Of course, all five of Zoe’s swims were also East Region records.
