They may be getting slower but Neville Staley and David Williams still get in their long-distance challenge at the end of every swimming season.ELAINE COONEY March 14, 2014 4:20am
Rochester’s Neville Staley and David Williams competed in their annual friendly swimming competition.
For the past 15 years, just before the pool closes every autumn the men have raced.
It was no surprise Staley won the 20-lap race and Williams won the sprint.
After the race, Staley said he was ‘‘absolutely stuffed’’ and had cramps in his calves.
He was disappointed his time was 15 seconds slower than last year.
He swam the 20 laps in 16 minutes 55 seconds and Williams swam the sprint in 33.47 seconds.
Staley swam 3500 laps at the Rochester pool during the summer period.
