Marlins Masters feature in World rankings

In the recently published world ranking, three of our Master swimmers and eight relay teams are in the all-time top 10 rankings.  In addition to the all-time world ranking, six Marlin Masters and thirteen relay teams are ranked in the top 10 for 2018.

Pride of place in the all-time rankings is our ladies 280+ 4x200m freestyle team who are ranked top.  The ladies, Alison Gwynn, Jenny Dean, Rose Dudeney and Mary Johnson, broke the long course world record last June in Plymouth. For the short course they are European record

holders and ranked number 2. 

 

 Individuals in the all-time top 10 are Sally Mills (60-64), ranked 8 and 10 for the short and long course 200m fly. Margaret Wilding, ranked 9 and 10 for the long course 50m backstroke in the 70-74 and 75-79 age groups. Dave Warren (40-44) 9 in the short course fly, 10 in the freestyle and, in the 45-49 age group, 4 in the long course 200m individual medley.
