Logue Makes Light Work of the Dark!

Article excerpt

CITY of Newcastle's Zak Logue won his first race in very unusual circumstances at the Chester-le-Street Junior Meet.

The pool lights failed just over halfway through his 1500m swim with Logue having taken an early lead.

The 14-year-old swam the final 500m in the dark to record victory in 17.03.34 - more than 34 seconds ahead of the second-placed swimmer!

Logue then moved on to the Middlesbrough Halloween Meet where he took on a busy programme of events.

He recorded a number of personal bests, taking second place in the 400m individual medley and 400m freestyle, third in the 200m and 100m backstroke, 200m individual medley, 200m and 100m butterfly and 50m freestyle and fourth places in the 100m and 200m freestyle.

Her younger brother James got in on the medals in the 11-year-old age group with silvers in the 200m backstroke, 200m individual medley and 400m freestyle.

Also collecting a handful of golds in the 10 years age group was Maisie Scott-Stuart.

She led the way in the 200m and 400m individual medley, 100m and 200m breaststroke and added the 100m butterfly title to silvers in 100m backstroke and 100m freestyle. …
