Munro pips Butcher to win 200 freestyle title battle


THERE was an exciting battle for first place honours and fastest time of the day between Island Games swimmers Annalise Munro and Courtney Butcher in the 200m freestyle event of the Specsavers Series staged by the Beau Sejour Barracudas Swimming Club.

THERE may not have been a golden finish to the NatWest Island Games for Guernsey’s swimmers, but three more island records on the last night of the programme tell their own story.

IT WAS a day to remember for one young Guernseyman in the beautiful setting of the outdoor pool at the Bermuda National Sports Centre yesterday.

Gold for record-breakers
