Lanark ASC Loch Ken

Loch Ken was the venue for the West DIstrict Championships, the final Open Water Meet of the season.

All the swimmers deserve great credit for competing in the atrocious weather conditions in the West of Scotland.

Justin Bone (11/12) was second in the 1km event in a time of 16 mins 22 just missing out on the gold by a second. Abbigail McArthur put in a typical gutsy performance to take silver in the 15/16 years 4km event. Abigail's, sister Millie was 9th in the 13/14 years 2km event.
