Above - 2013 Devon Masters team who won the South West Region (ASA National Masters & Seniors Inter County Competetion) at Millfield on 10th Nov
A large contingent of Devon Masters swimmers travelled to Sheffield at the end of October to compete in the ASA National Masters and Seniors competition. Held over 3 days at Ponds Forge, around 40 swimmers from Devon clubs: Totnes, Exmouth, Tiverton, Exeter City, Devonport, Crediton, Royal Navy and Honiton all competed. There were impressive performances all round showing the strength and depth of masters swimming within Devon. Simon Veale made headline performances taking gold in 7 out of 8 races he entered in the 55-59yrs age group. Sue Haigh was not far behind with 6 gold medals in the 60-64yrs age group. The Totnes 72+ relay team managed the impossible and split the two Loughborough teams to take an amazing silver medal. Many of our swimmers put in top 10 performances.

Ruta Meilutyte, the Plymouth based Lithuanian swimmer, set world records in the 50m and 100mm Breastroke events in the semi finals. In the finals Ruta won Gold in the 100m and Silver in the 50M.
All in Devon congratulate her achievements.
World Record holder in 50m and 100m Breaststroke (LC) and 100m Breaststroke (SC). Had broken the European record for 50m and 100m Breaststroke both LC and SC earlier in the season.
World Champion LC in 100m Breaststroke and silver in the 50m
World Champion SC in 50m and 100m Breaststroke and silver in the 100m IM.
Three gold medals at the FINA World Cup in the 50m & 100m Breaststroke and 100m IM.
Four World Junior titles and two silver medals. Three CBT's at the World Juniors
European Junior Champion in 100m Breaststroke and silver in the 50m Freestyle. CBT for the 100m and the European Juniors.
We managed to smash numerous pbs , especially considering how hard it is to swim fast this early on in the season. We were unlucky to miss out on being promoted to division 1 by one race – however our fighting spirit and determination will be carried onto next year where (fingers crossed) we will make it into division 1.
The support to one and another shown by the swimmers was one to be acknowledged alongside the efficiency and support of all the Devon coaches and managers.
It has been a pleasure to swim for Devon now for 6 years and an honour to represent Devon as ladies captain for my last year. I wish all the swimmers the best of luck for next year.
