Eight Out To Swim South (OTSS) swimmers competed at Eastbourne in their annual Masters event, and came away with 12 medals in their first team event together.
EVEN though some of the swimmers were competing for the first time, they achieved some great results.
The total medal haul was 5 golds, 3 silver and 4 bronze, an excellent start to the season. More events are planned later in the year.
A masters swim meet is open to swimmers over 25 years old. Swimmers compete against others in their own age group (25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-45, etc).
OTSS is a group of gay and gay friendly swimmers of all ages and they always welcome new members.
Sessions are held 3 times a week and cater for those who are starting out and gaining confidence with coaching available to improve their technique to those who enjoy competition, including triathletes.

The first session is free and they don’t just swim. Social events are also held giving everyone a great chance to socialise.
