Luke Elliott just missed his MQT by 0.01 of a second, but he still came away with six bronze medals.In the 200m breaststroke, there was a nail-biting race between Elliot and Calvin Wilson in their heat.

Rebecca McKenzie swam six impressive races, gaining a fantastic 5.90sec PB in the 400m free, while Eleanor Templer improved her 200IM and 200m backstroke MQT, but was 0.01 of a second off her 100m back MQT.

Tom Mitchell achieved new MQT’s in the 200m and 400m freestyle, while also getting an amazing 6.28sec PB in the 400m backstroke. Calvin Wilson also achieved an amazing 12.05sec PB in the 400m IM and achieved MQT’s in both the 200m IM and 400m IM. Emily McCann got new 200m freestyle and 100m freestyle MQT’s, while Spencer Turner just missed out by coming fourth in the open 50m breaststroke.

It was double delight for Jordan Templer, who won the 100m and 200m back, with Cheryl Wilson also first in the 100m back.
