Ollie Fitt led the St Ives Swimming Club charge in the opening weekend of the Cambridgeshire County Championships.
The teenage star won six individual medals and starred in two relay triumphs during an event to savour.
Fitt roared to glory in the 200m backstroke before completing a golden double in the 100m and 200m individual medley races at the Parkside Pool, in Cambridge.
He also followed home clubmate Andy Weatheritt as St Ives dominated the 50m freestyle, and took bronze over 100m in that stroke.
Fitt’s fine exploits earned him a place in the ‘Skins’ shoot-out involving the fastest eight swimmers in the gala - and he also added that crown to his haul of honours.
