James Guy has claimed the first major title of his career with 200m Freestyle gold at the World Champs in Russia.
The 19-year-old paced himself turning third with 50m to go before powering home in a new British Record 1:45.14 to take gold.
“I just thought about swimming my own race" - James Guy
“I just thought about swimming my own race and getting my tactics right and if I beat anyone it was a bonus,” said Guy.
“There’s more there for me though. You look at Ryan Lochte’s underwater phases and he’s like a dolphin. So if I had them, I could go even faster.”
Having won 100m Breaststroke gold last night Adam Peaty set a 50m Breaststroke World Record in his semi-final.
“I feel pretty stoked really,” said Peaty. “I went out there, improved my start and just let the swimming swim. It’s going to be a good final.”
