Guildford City Masters have three swimmers that have made it into the 2017 FINA world master top ten list. Micheal Hodge, Michelle Ware and David Bryant have been rewarded for the epic training and world beating times they have recorded over 2016.
Michelle Ware leading the way for the masters team for years was in the top ten for the long course fifty fly, free and back stroke and the hundred free and back as well as in the short course fifty free, back and the hundred free and back stroke. Her highest ranking is two in the world for her age group, which is an amazing achievement.
Micheal Hodgson achieved top ten times in his short course fifty breast, fly and the hundred breaststroke, fly and individual medley. He also achieved it in the long course fifty breast, hundred breaststroke, two hundred breaststroke and individual medley. His highest ranking is second in the world, which no less then he deserves for his dedication and effort put in in the pool.
David Bryant ranked in the top ten in the short course fifty breaststroke, one hundred breast and the four hundred individual medley short course. In the long course pool he ranked in the fifty breaststroke, the hundred breaststroke and the two hundred individual medley.
David and Michelle are coached by the masters squad coaches Ivo and Sergey Mandradzhiyski and are still achieving personal best times year on year with the help of the Guildford City masters program.
Michael Hodgson trains under Josh Williamson in the national squad.
All in all this is a credit to them as talented swimmers and Guildford city for producing a world beating training environment.
