FINA 2009 World Championships Swimming - Day 3 Morning Session

David Davies took five seconds off the 800m Freestyle British record as the British Gas swimming team secured one final and three semi-final places after strong performances through the heat session. Davies took to heat four alongside Italian Federico Colbertaldo and Robert Hurley (Australia) and was looking to post a quick time to reach the final next day.

The Olympic silver medallist dominated the first half of his race but as the race entered the final 400m Colbertaldo began to close in on the British Gas swimmer. Davies showed his strength in the final 100m as he touched in a time of 7:45.89 to knock five seconds off his own British record time and qualified in fourth place for the final.

Plymouth Leander are 2009 British National Age Group Club Champions

2009 British National Age Group Club Champions

Plymouth Leander have become the 2009 British National Age Group Club Champions for the first time after five days of intense competition at the Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield. Their margins of victory in being named GB's leading age group swimming programme and successfully defending their Top male Club Award from 2008 were nearly 130 points, and packed with landmark moments for British swimming.

PL's tally of 32 medals (13 gold, 11 silver and 8 bronze) if not the greatest, certainly one of the largest hauls the competition has ever seen since National Age and National Youth Championships were split into two competitions back in 2002.

British Age Group Records were also the order of the day, with Matthew Powell taking both the 14 years 100m Freestyle (52.59) and 100m Butterfly (56.56) records, whilst Jack Smith claimed his first British mark in the 13 years 200m Freestyle (1:58.18).

Matthew Rose set Scottish National Age Group records in the 13 years 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m Freestyle.

European Youth Olympic Festival 2009 Swimming Day 3

18 to 25 July 2009 - Tampere, Finland

Great Britainís athletes awoke to the news that Team GB were sitting proudly at the top of the competition medal table after three days of intense competition.

Two bronze medals were won in the swimming pool, bringing the total number of medals claimed by Team GB swimmers to eight. Both Team GB swimmers who secured bronze medals today reacted with disappointment, demonstrating their firm desire to be the best.

Team GBís youngest member Amelia Maughan (Dorset) set a personal best (26.57) to add 50m freestyle bronze to the 100m gold she won earlier in the week; ďI felt I could have got at least silver so I am a little bit disappointed. The time is nice and the fact that I picked up another medal is pleasing but when you are ranked second, thatís what you should be aiming for. Iím still learning all the time and Iím sure there will be a bit more pressure on me next time, but Iím looking forward to it,Ē she said.

Matthew Powell of Plymouth Leander set a new British Age Group Record for the boys 14-years 100m freestyle. Coming into the final as the fastest qualifier, Powellís strength off the blocks helped him into an impressive lead that he was able to maintain throughout the race finishing in 52.59. Powell adds this to the 100m backstroke title he won yesterday.

Of the result he said: ďI was just hoping to better my time from this morning, but to knock another second off is really great. Itís nice to add another gold to the collection, and hopefully Iíll swim well enough to get some more.Ē

22 to 26 July 2009 - Sheffield

As the British Gas swimming team were preparing in Rome, the sportís next generation of stars took to the pool at the British Gas ASA National Age Group Championships in Sheffield.

All eyes at Ponds Forge were on 14-year-old Matthew Johnson (Co. Sheffield) in the boys 400m final. After breaking Myles Crouch-Andersonís British Age Group Record during the heats in the morning, Johnson got a strong start off the blocks and led from the front. Touching the wall in 3:59.84 he smashed the record that he set earlier in the day to take gold.

European Youth Olympic Festival 2009 Swimming Day 2

18 to 25 July 2009 - Tampere, Finland

Team GB continued their successful run capturing another three medals in the pool.

The first final of the day saw Northamptonís Myles Crouch-Anderson take a convincing gold in the menís 400m Freestyle event. The 15-year-old touched with a new P.B. of 3:55.42 and was over one-and-a-half seconds faster than his closest competitor: Austriaís Christian Scheruebl. Crouch-Anderson was pleased with the result, but saw room for even further improvement; "Although the time was a personal best, I couldíve gone even faster, but the gold medal is what I came for and thatís what Iíve got. Representing my country and standing on the podium with the medal around my neck and the Olympic rings on my top felt great. Hopefully in three years time Iíll be able to stand there with another Olympic medal."

13-year-old Bournemouth Dolphins star Amelia Maughan enhanced her growing reputation by overcoming Franceís Charlotte Bonnet and Italyís Giada Trentin in the womenís 100m Freestyle with a time of 56.93 seconds.

Reflecting on the race she said; "My reaction time was pretty bad, but I tried to go out fast. I realised I was in front of the Italian girl, but behind the French - my two main rivals. At the turn I was behind and about ten metres away from the finish I thought ĎI canít do this, Iím going to come secondí, but I tried my hardest and managed to overtake her in the final metre at the end."

Maughan was delighted with the performance; "Itís a mega-PB, almost a second faster than my previous personal best. This is the biggest achievement of my career and my first international gold medal. Standing on the podium was breathtaking. My next race is the 50m freestyle, which is my stronger event so Iím confident going into that too."
