A tribute to Ken McKay - life member and dear friend

Homepage Image

We are sad to announce that our dear friend Ken McKay has passed away.  Ken was an avid supporter of our team and re-established links with the club a few years ago.

He is pictured with our club captain Ross Burns who was presented with the Elenor Gordon Memorial Award in January 2016 by Ken.

Ken was a great character, he always had great stories to tell and made us all laugh with his jokes and sharp wit.

Ken was an accomplished swimmer in his day and as a masters swimmer.  During his career Ken broke 100 British and Scottish records, winning 168 Scottish Masters titles, 40 British titles and five World golds, setting 10 world records in the process.

He will be greatly missed.

4 New Year Resolutions Every Swimmer Must Make

A Tribute to Elenor Gordon (May 1934 – July 2014)

Homepage Image

Life Member , Friend and most accomplished swimmer of Hamilton Baths ASC.

In 1950 at the age of 16 , Elenor was the first ever Scottish woman to win a Gold Medal at the Empire Games. Her win in the 220 yards Breaststroke also makes her Scotland's youngest ever Gold medallist.

In the 1952 Olympic Games held in Helsinki, Elenor was the only British Swimmer to win a medal, coming home with a Bronze. However , this was a controversial race as Butterfly was included in the final alongside Breaststroke ; this was a new style and faster than Breaststroke, however Elenor held her nerve and came 3rd overall

Lifetime Achievements


Olympic Games

British Empire and Commonwealth Games

Bronze 1952 Helsinki, Finland 200m Breaststroke

Gold 1950 Auckland, NZ 220yd Breaststroke
Gold 1954 Vancouver, Canada 220yd Breaststroke
Gold 1954 Vancouver, Canada 3x110yd Medley
Bronze 1950 Auckland, NZ 3x110yd Medley

Elenor didn't stop there! She and her husband , Ken McKay , went on to win many medals across the world at Masters level. Elenor has been an inspiration to all our swimmers , past and present and she has shown us all how hard work and dedication can lead to success.

Our thought and prayers are with Ken and his family at this very sad time. We have not only lost a life member of the club but a dear friend.

Touching the wall on Breaststroke and Butterfly

There has been some debate about how swimmers should touch the wall in Breaststroke and Butterfly after FINA announced a “new” rule after the summer.    They have now sent clarification in the form of photographs, which is really helpful.

Please look at the photos posted in Gala -> Documents and you will be clear about what is acceptable.
