Congratulations to Janet McLean, winner of the Peter Heatly Trophy for 2018, seen here receiving the trophy from immediate past President, Richie Metcalfe.
Janet started her impressive career in the 1980’s as an 8 year old with
Warrender Baths, and hasn’t taken a break from competitive swimming in the
last 35 years.
Over this time she has accumulated twenty Scottish Masters records, adding
another three to her tally this year; breaking the 45-49 year old short course
records in the 400 IM, 200 Back and 1500 Free.
She is consistently in the World Top Ten rankings, ranked World No 2 in 400IM,
and No 3 in 200 fly in 2016, adding the 200 Back to these events in the 2017
Janet has won Gold Medals at three European Masters; winning the
400 free in the Ukraine in 2011, the 200 Fly in Eindhoven in 2013 and Slovenia
this summer she won the 100 Fly.
She has achieved all this while completing a PhD, which has led her to a
demanding career as a University lecturer in Psychology, raising her two sons,
and coaching at Carnegie Swimming Club.
She is a much-respected member of the master’s community and an
inspiration to others, young and old involved in the sport.
