There was another golden performance from Ben Penhale as he took top spot in the 200m Butterfly, and also silver in the 100m Free. Ella Jenkins was again in the medals with her first gold of the Championships in the 50m Breaststroke and a bronze in the 100m Free, producing her best in both the heats and then the final. An energy-sapping day also saw Ella in the 200m Fly final where she just missed the medals with 4th place.

For the girls, Kirsty Cornish made the final of the 50m Breaststroke (8th) and Abigail Phipps put in a strong performance in the 200m Fly to bag a 5th place, joined by Sophie Chambers with 7th.
