The Kinross Otters sent a strong team to the Tayside Distance Championships but no one was prepared for the fireworks that ensued.

Jack Muncey (12), fresh from his superb bronze medal at the Scottish National Age Group Championships last month, simply destroyed Tayside’s finest in the 13 year old category.

Jack made another leap in his level of performances as he tantalised and tormented the opposition in equal measure to surpass his own achievement from February’s Long Course Tayside Championships where he won seven gold medals and a silver.

This time it was eight.

However, it was in his best event, the 200m backstroke where the statistics rolled on, seemingly endlessly.

He won by 21 seconds in 2.17.51, the fastest time in that event all day by any age group and breaking countless records in the process.

It was also the tenth fastest 12 year old time for a British swimmer.

He continued in the 800m freestyle in 9.21.34.

If that weren’t enough he broke the Midland District 400m age group record en route to that 800m time in 4.36.14 and is now ranked Scottish number one for that too.

The 1500 freestyle (18.01.74) and 100m Backstroke (1.05.78) also saw Scottish number one rankings and Midland District age group records. He rounded off the weekend with golds in the 100m butterfly, 100m freestyle, 200m freestyle and 50m freestyle.
