Oban Otters sprinted home with eight medals at the Kingston Sprints at Larkhall on Sunday and 12 places.

Ten swimmers made the three-hour trip and came home with 24 personal bests, five golds, three silvers, three fourth places, five fifths and three sixths.

There were also five swims that were faster than the entry times, which allows these swimmers to enter quicker graded competitions in the future.
Rachel Carre won gold for back crawl and free style, both faster than the entry times.

Juliette Main won gold for breast stroke and back crawl and one faster than entry time. Edie Elliott took gold for free style and silver in back crawl with one faster than entry time.

Abby MacQueen took gold for fly with a faster than entry time. Jessica Main won silver in the breast stroke, with an almost four second personal best.
Fourteen-year-old Edie Elliott said: ‘It was great fun to be swimming 50m sprints, as you can really push yourself to swim your fastest’.
