After a dis­ap­point­ing 200m indi­vid­ual med­ley ear­li­er in the week, Anne Bochmann clocked a two sec­ond life-time best today to fin­ish 4th in the 400m freestyle at the Com­mon­wealth Games in Delhi.

Sec­ond to dou­ble Olympic Cham­pi­on Rebec­ca Adling­ton for much of the race, Anne’s time of 4:08.30 was just 0.08 sec­onds out­side bronze medal posi­tion, which was even­tu­al­ly won by Wales’ Jaz Carlin.

Well done and con­grat­u­la­tions Anne from all at City of Leeds Swim­ming Club. A great swim after a long and gru­elling sea­son that’s not over just yet; Anne is swim­ming in the 200m but­ter­fly tomorrow!
