Congratulations to Anne Bochmann and Emma Graham on winning gold medals in the 4 x 200m freestyle relay at the European Junior Championships in Prague on Saturday.

Along with team mates, Eleanor Faulkner (Co Sheffield) and Danielle Stirratt (Co Cardiff), they also set a new European Junior Record for the event. The team clocked 8:08.31 to break the record held by last years GB team by just over half a second. The team’s splits were as follows:

  • STIRRAT Danielle 2:02.97
  • FAULKNER Eleanor 2:02.31
  • GRAHAM Emma 2:02.24
  • BOCHMANN Anne 2:00.79

Special mention to a fantastic anchor leg by Anne, who took over in second place but soon overhauled the team from Sweden to win by over 2 seconds, and give Team GB its first of two gold medals at the meet.Well Done Girls!
