The third day of swimming at the European Games in Baku was another triumph for Team GB claiming six more medals.
Duncan Scott now leads the way with a total of four having added 100m Free gold before joining Martyn Walton, Kyle Chisholm and Cameron Kurle to bag silver in the 4x200m Free.
Setting a new 100m Free 18 Yrs British Age Group record with 49.43, Scott said “I was delighted with the win and helping the GB swimmers in the medal table against Russia, it will be a battle until the end.”
Team GB's fifth relay medal went to Layla Black, Rebecca Sherwin, Georgia Coates and Amelia Clynes with bronze in the 4x100m medley.
"Coming in that top three shows that a gold medal is within my grasp in the future." -
14-year old Layla Black
For 14-year old Black it was the second trip to the podium of the day having scooped 200m Breaststroke bronze as the youngest swimmer of the final, and set a 14 Yrs British Age Group record of 2:27.09 in the semi.
“I know the other girls are a year or two older than me," said Black. "So coming in that top three shows that a gold medal is within my grasp in the future if I’m keeping up with them and I’m only 14.”
The team's other two medals came in the 200m IM with Jarvis Parkinson claiming silver with a new 16 Yrs British Age Group record of 2:01.94, ahead of 17-year old Walton who touched for bronze in 2:02.24 PB.
“I’m happy with today, but sometimes I expect a little better from myself", said Walton. "I don’t think that’s a bad thing, it’s my last year as a junior so that’s the attitude I need to have going into next year.”
