Harriet Cooper and Edward Baxter won gold as GB’s top junior swimmers continued to impress at the Ontario Junior International in Toronto.
Cooper won her second gold in as many days, adding to her 200m Freestyle title from the opening night with victory in the 50m Freestyle.
The 18-year old, who trains with triple world champion Adam Peaty at the City of Derby, took nearly half a second off her PB as she won in 24.86 while 15-year old Woking swimmer Anna Maine was 14th in 26.20 after a PB 26.10 heat swim.
Cooper also reached the podium for the 100m Backstroke in Canada, clocking a PB 58.69 for bronze behind Canadian swimmer Danielle Hanus (57.63) and British teammate Kathleen Dawson, who set a Scottish record 58.11 for silver.
Baxter won his gold medal in the 200m Breaststroke, with Charlie Attwood following him home for a British one-two.
Cockermouth swimmer Baxter became the second-fastest British 17-year old of all time as he took the touch in a two-second PB 2:11.47 while 18-year old Taunton Deane swimmer Charlie Attwood was also in career best form as he came home in 2:13.37.
There were two Brits on the podium in the women’s 200m Butterfly as Plymouth Leander’s Laura Stephens and Ellesmere College Titans’ Taz Pugh won silver and bronze respectively.
Stephens sliced a huge four seconds off her PB with a 2:08.54 heat swim before clocking 2:08.64 in the final while 15-year old Pugh was just 0.13 seconds shy of her own British Junior Short Course record with a 2:08.99 effort for bronze.
Stephens picked up her second silver of the night in the 50m Butterfly, taking her personal best down to 26.75 with Dawson fifth in a PB 27.30.
Pugh was also back in the water later in the session to win 400m Freestyle bronze in a PB 4:09.30 with Chelsea & Westminster’s Georgina Boyle just behind in fourth in a PB 4:09.74.
Craig McLean was the only other medallist of the night for the British juniors, winning bronze medals in the 50m Freestyle and 100m Backstroke in 22.76 and 55.05 respectively.
