Exciting weekend ahead for DUSC as swimming is set to be live streamed at #BUCSNationals
(14 February 2020)
Over this BUCS weekend, 21 swimmers from DUSC will be competing at the Long Course BUCS swimming championships at Ponds Forge Sheffield. Captaining our squad this year are Kate Carter (women’s captain) and Jack Filer (men’s captain).
Members of the squad to watch out for include Lucy Sharp and Iain Fletcher. Lucy broke the English Deaf Record for the 100m freestyle at the Short Course BUCS earlier this year and there could be another one on the cards. Iain may be recovering from injury, but he has his eyes set on the 50m butterfly University record, having broken the record at Short Course BUCS, he is eyeing up the Long Course record set by Jono Dixon in 2017.
The mixed medley relay is also an event to keep an eye on, as it is very likely that the University record will be broken, maybe by quite some distance. The entry times for the women’s 4 x 100 free and Medley relays as well as the men’s 4 x 100 Medley are also very close to the University records, some of which are over 10 years old, so it will be worth a watch to see if they go! The event is being streamed live on YouTube so friends and family can watch from home. If you cannot find the link, it will be posted on our social media pages as soon as we know what it is.
