As the Euro­pean Junior Cham­pi­onships draw to a close, our rep­re­sen­ta­tives show no signs of let­ting up.

Yes­ter­day saw Amelia Clynes set a new British Age Group record in the 100m but­ter­fly to qual­i­fy joint fastest for tonight’s final. In the final, Amelia dipped under the one minute bar­ri­er for the first time to touch home in 59.96. A per­for­mance that low­ered her British mark once again and earnt her a sil­ver medal in a close-fought race.

Hav­ing won a bronze medal in the 400m indi­vid­ual med­ley ear­li­er in the week, Geor­gia Coates was back in action today, this time com­pet­ing in the 200m event. She qual­i­fied sec­ond quick­est for tomorrow’s final.
