Lanark ASC is clinching medals wherever they go – in and out of the pool!

Three swimmers took part in the second open water event of the season, the Midlands District Open Water Championships, returning from Monikie with two gold medals and one bronze medal.

Sisters Millie and Abbigail McArthur swam in the morning session. Both girls won their respective 2km titles, Millie in the 11/12 years age group – in just her second open water event - and Abbigail in the 15/16 years age group.

In the afternoon Heather Stevenson competed in the 3km event, finishing an excellent third.

Heather's time of 36 minutes and 12 seconds means that she has earned a qualifying spot in the British Championships in Sheffield later in the summer.
