Muspratt and Langan off to Holland
1:01pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in Headlines
SALISBURY Stingrays swimmers Phil Muspratt and Rob Langan head to Eindhoven next week as they embark on their biggest competition of the season.
The 2013 LEN European Masters Championships will attract 6,000 competitors in swimming, open water swimming, synchronised swimming and diving.
Langan will be going for gold in the 50m, 100m and 200m backstroke, as well as the 400m freestyle, in what will be his first European Championships.
After a successful British Masters Championships back in June, Langan will be looking to continue his progress in Eindhoven.
“I'm feeling confident,” he said.
“I swam in the Eindhoven pool during a training camp in 2003, I remember how fast it was back then so I hope that returning 10 years on I can compete well and get the results I’m looking for.”
Muspratt, pictured above, who is sponsored by Jones & Co, will be going into his second European Championships and will be gunning for medals in the 100m and 50m freestyle, and the 200m freestyle and 50m backstroke.
Muspratt said: “For me personally the 50m freestyle is a race I just want to perform well in. I know what I’m capable of, I just want to show that in the pool, and if I do there’s no reason I can’t come home with a medal.”
