Swimming Finalists, Esso Youth Sport Championships, 1989

This image was recently highlighted in Am Baile's 'Picture Detective' feature, run in conjunction with the Inverness Courier. It shows Inverness Swimming Club finalists in the Esso Youth Sport Championships 1989, at Dollan Baths, East Kilbride. The boys reached the final of the freestyle relay team event. This was the first time in many years that a team from Inverness Swimming Club had qualified for a final at the championships.

The swimmers are Michael Russell, Myles MacKintosh, Andrew Urquhart and Calum McDonald. Alistair Russell, of Harrowden Road, was the boys' swimming coach at the time.

Myles MacKintosh went on to compete at Scottish level and was part of the Scottish relay team at the Commonwealth Games.

We are grateful to Liz Gray, Alistair Russell and Fraser Elder for the information.
