Clubmate Simon Bradford took silver in the 100m freestyle while fellow St Ives swimmers Freddie Clarke, Nicole Bradford, Matt Smith and Terri Smith all clocked lifetime bests at the event.

St Ives also enjoyed success closer to home recently when triumphing in the first round of the Arena National League. They beat Dereham, City of Norwich and hosts Wisbech.
