World record holders Jane Asher and Sophie Casson

Sophie Casson travelled up to Aberdeen last weekend to compete in the British Masters and Senior Age Group National Championships 2017, and came back home with no less than one World Record and two European Records!!

Getting the weekend off to a flying start on Friday evening, Sophie’s phenomenal time of 17:20.55 in the 1500m Freestyle set a New World Record in the 30-34yrs age group.

Setting the pace in the 400m Freestyle, another European Record toppled as Sophie finished in 4:23.39. A blistering time of 2:18.76 in the 200m Backstroke set her 3rd European Record of the weekend.

Sophie took time out to chat with Masters swimming legend Jane Asher (85-89 year age group), who is another World Record holder.
