World Record for Putteridge!

Lawrence received his 2nd European Record for 100 breast this morning alongside the absolute swimming legend Jane Asher. But something even more incredible followed. He broke the Great British, European and World record in the 25/29 yrs Masters with an incredible time of 26.99 in the 50M breaststroke!

Lawrence brought the curtain down on the Swim England Masters National Championships 2017 with a 50m Breaststroke world record in the final session at Ponds Forge. Lawrence’s time sliced almost a second off the previous world record of 27.31.

“The record was an added bonus to the fact that I was close to my PB, especially as I didn’t expect to break the time,” he said.

“Putteridge Masters do a large amount of land-based work. I think this gave me an edge today.”
