Thomas on the World Stage
Event: XIII FINA World Masters Championships 2010 Venue: Gothenburg, Sweden Date: 31st July to 6th August 2010
Matthew Thomas was Dolphin’s sole representative at the 2010 FINA World Masters Swimming Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The competition displayed its usual high standard with some exceptionally fast swims, particularly in Thomas’ 25-29 year age group, that would not have looked out of place in the forthcoming domestic Open National Championships.
Thomas’ opening event was the 100m freestyle, finishing 14th in a respectable 54.88 seconds. Personal bests in the 50m freestyle and 50m breaststroke in times of 25.10 seconds and 32.48 seconds followed and a 28.48 second 50m butterfly just outside his best. Thomas was pleased overall with his performances and happy to be the highest placed Briton in three of his four events.
