ZOE Cray might be feeling disappointed to have missed out on a place in the Commonwealth Games this week, but it certainly hasn't stopped her achieving continual pool success.

The Ipswich swimmer proved her superb ability once again last week when she took home three golds from the 2002 Cambridge Open Meet.

Just five Ipswich swimmers made the trip to this year's popular event, but each one unquestionably proved the enormous strength and talent within the club.

The select squad of swimmers included Cray, Aimee Mallion, James Freezer, Joseph Rhodes and Matt Vinter.

Collectively, their achievements gave them an overall position of second visiting club – only falling behind the much larger team from Norwich Penguins.

Aside from Zoe's three golds, Matt Vinter also took three, with the increasingly successful Joseph Rhodes taking a further two.

Matt, who continues to impress on the regional and national circuit, finished top overall boy of the competition and was presented with his award at the end of the evening session.

The 13-year-old claimed first place in the 100 metres Butterfly, Backstroke and Freestyle.
