Crawley Town Life Saving Clubs “Zara Williams” broke her own European record previously set at 33.91 seconds twice, heat and final when beating the two fancied Australian swimmers by over two seconds when recording a time of 33.30 seconds at the Europe’s top pool lifesaving Championships the “German Cup” held in the Olympic pool in Warendorf, Germany. The day before she also broke the Ladies Open European record previously held by Magali Rousseau of France in 1:10.62 seconds in the 100m Rescue Medley in a time of 1:10.12 seconds nearly two and half seconds ahead of the two Australian national team swimmers Prue Davies and Mariah Jones who took second and third respectively.

Once again the German Cup championships was being used by the World’s top lifesavers from Australia, France, Belgium, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands in the build up to the World Championships RESCUE 2018 being held in Adelaide, Australia, where Zara as the current World Club Champion will be racing the best the world has to offer.
