East District Age Groups Round 1

on Thursday, 08 October 2015.

Important information

Given the potential difficulties of getting to Glenrothes on Sunday over the weekend of 31st October and 1 November, we have arranged to run the meet over two weekends instead. The second day will now take place on Saturday 7 November. Our thanks to Livingston Dolphins and the organisers of the East Lothian and Borders schools for re -arranging events they had planned on November 7th.
Because of a prior comittment at Glenrothes pool on the 7th, the gala will start at 8:00am and end at 3:15.  Swimmers will be given access to the building at 7:45am.  The timings for Saturday 31st are unchanged. We will post complete timings for both events on the East District blog at a later date.
If any swimmers cannot swim on the 7th November, please let Susan Liddle know immediately.

Keri-Anne Payne on Question of Sport - tonight

on Wednesday, 07 October 2015.

BBC1 22:35

Keri-Anne Payne appears tonight on 'Question of Sport' tonight on BBC1 at 22:35.

Payne was born in Johannesburg, South Africa to British parents,wh o registered her birth at the British Consulate. She started swimming aged four, and was noticed aged eight by British Swimming's national performance director Bill Sweetenhamat a training camp in South Africa. As a result, the family returned to the UK to live in Heywood, Greater Manchester, when she was 13.

Joining Stockport Metro, she has been coached since by Sean Kelly. Having broken British junior 800m freestyle record in 2002, Payne's central financial support was cut after she failed to win a medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. As a result, Kelly suggested that she tried open water swimming, allowing her to access additional central funding.

She represented Great Britain at the 2008 Summer Olympics in the 200m and 400m individual medley swimming events as well as the 10 km open water event, in which was placed second and won a silver medal for Great Britain.[4]

At the 2009 World Aquatics Championships, held in Rome, Payne won the 10km swim. She finished first in a time of two hours, one minute and 37.1 seconds.[5]

In 2011 in Shanghai, Payne reclaimed the World Championship in the 10 km Open Water event, becoming in the process the first British athlete in any sport to confirm qualification for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

Payne took part in the 10 km swimming in the London 2012 Olympics and finished fourth, four seconds behind the winner.

Payne trained at British Swimming's Intensive Training Centre at Stockport's Grand Central Pools.There she meet fellow swimmer David Carry, whom she married on 15 September 2012 in Aberdeen. The couple lived in Heywood, Greater Manchester,but in light of Carry's retirement from competitive swimming and in preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, after their wedding they relocated to the Scottish capital where she joined Warrender Baths Club.
