Over this summer I competed in my two biggest events of my swimming season and I thought I would share how I got on.
So I raced in Kazan, Russia where I got a bronze in the men’s 4×100 free relay and achieved a surprise 4th place in my 200 fly individual, collecting a pb and closing in on the 2minuite barrier with a time of 2.00.5
2 weeks later I competed at EYOF in Baku, Azerbaijan where I tallied up at total of 6 medals 3 gold, 3 silver.
- Gold: 200free individual, 4×100 mixed free, 4×100 men’s free
- Silver: 4×100 men’s medley, 200 fly, 4×100 mixed medley
In my 200fly I broke a British Age group record with a time of 1.58.6 and in my 200 free i was just shy of the EYOF record by just 0.13 with my time being 1.49.33 . At the end of the week i was announced by swimswam as one of the top 5 male swimmers at EYOF and was joint most decorated athlete in team GB with Katie Shanahan who also won 3 gold and 3 silver.
As always thank you so much for the support arena UK and i’m really looking forward to next season
