The stars of the second and final day at Club Natacio, Sant Andreu in Barcelona were Siobhan-Marie O’Connor, Adam Peaty and Jazz Carlin, scooping three more Mare Nostrum golds for GB.
Commonwealth champion O’Connor ruled the 200m IM final throughout, leaving World and European champion Katinka Hosszu trailing behind in third, as the Brit touched in a Championship record time 2:09.56.
“I am really pleased. I had that in my mind – that was what I wanted to go but I didn’t know if I could. I hope I can now dig deep in the last couple of months before Kazan.”
Following on from 100m Breaststroke on day one, Adam Peaty did the double, snatching the 50m Breast gold in the final touch.
"The back end and turns have been good but the speed is not there yet." - Chris Walker-Hebborn
Peaty puts his consistency down to “a lot of training”, saying “we’ve come off the back of a really hard camp. These kind of meets you get really up for and the work is paying off.”
Also adding to their gold run was Jazz Carlin with a convincing 400m Free win, with team-mate Hannah Miley claiming the bronze.
Backstroker Chris Walker-Hebborn added 100m Back silver to his day one 50m gold, saying "The consistency has been good. The back end and turns have been good but the speed is not there yet. My confidence is really high, I am just trying to keep it rolling.”
In the 800m Free Stephen Milne fought a good race to scoop silver behind Canadian World champ Ryan Cochrane.
