Dan Wallace sealed a pair of fifth-place finishes on the second day of the Austin Grand Prix in Texas.
The 22-year old, who was part of Great Britain’s gold medal winning 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet in Kazan last summer, opened the finals session with a 4:18.37 effort in the 400m Individual Medley.
Wallace returned for the 200m Freestyle later in the session and showed good speed in the final, clocking the sixth fastest time of his career in 1:49.56, chasing home fourth-placed Michael Phelps (1:48.87) in the process.
University of Bath swimmer Jay Lelliott was back in an A final after his seventh place in the 400m Free on the opening night.
The 20-year old smashed his PB of 2:03.17 with a 2:02.37 effort in the heats, before slowing slightly in the final, touching eighth in 2:03.42.
Lelliott also returned for the B Final of the 200m Free, finishing 14th overall in 1:51.12 while Millfield’s 18-year old Cam Kurle clocked the eighth fastest time of his career with a 1:50.97 in the D final to finish 25th.
City of Leeds’ Georgia Coates was the top British women’s performer of the day, finishing 13th in the 200m Freestyle with a 2:00.72 – the second fastest time of her career behind her 2:00.16 PB from last year’s British Summer Champs.
Jess Fullalove and Taz Pugh also secured evening swims, finishing 11th and 22nd respectively in the 200m Backstroke, while Joe Hulme was 18th in the men’s 200m Back.
