Boston Rowing Club member Mark Housam, also an active member of Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, switched water disciplines to compete in the British Isles Fire Service Swimming Meet in the West Midlands.

Mark collected two medals in warmer and calmer water conditions.

He received two bronze medals, one in the team 100m medley and another in the 45-50 freestyle category.
