PSUK Aquatic Championships
The 2016 PSUK Swimming & Water Polo Championships were for the first time in my police career hosted jointly by the PSUK section committee and a lead force. Sussex worked with the committee to deliver a great championship at the K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley over the weekend of 23rd & 24th April. All the hard work and preparations paid off as the event was a great success, despite numbers being slightly down there was healthy competition throughout.
In the first event; 400m freestyle West Midlands dominated with Claire Thorn and Nigel Gaskin taking gold. West Midlands continued their success with Sara Gamble winning both the 200m IM and 100m breastroke and Ryan Long the 100m backstroke. Other individual winners on day one were newcomer Helen Cumber, Metropolitan in the 100m backstroke; Chris Jones, South Wales in the 200 IM and Aimee Ramm, Leicestershire in the 100m freestyle. Garry Dixon, Thames Valley and Thomas Allen, Kent recorded the same time in the 100m freestyle to come joint first and Paul Graham, Sussex won the 100m breastroke. In the 4 x 50m freestyle relays the Metropolitan Men won both the open and 140 years with Police Scotland winning the ladies open and West Midlands the 140 years.
