Miley and Willmott relived their 400m IM battle from the 2018 Commonwealth Games, as the women raced to a 1-2 in-season finish. Unlike the result on the Gold Coast where Willmott took the gold, tonight it was Miley who got her hand on the wall first in 4:40.28 to Willmott’s 4:41.84.
Their outings tonight were well-off the duel in Australia, where Willmott took gold in 4:34.90 and Miley in silver in 4:35.16. Both times from last month remain as the 2nd and 3rd fastest in the world this season.
Yesterday’s 200m backstroke winner for the women, Kathryn Greenslade, doubled up with a 200m freestyle victory tonight. The 20-year-old Edinburgh athlete raced to a time of 2:00.94 to lead a 1-2-3 squad sweep. Rachel Masson and Monique Oliver, both from Edinburgh, rounded out the top 3 in 2:01.92 and 2:02.96, respectively. Of note, Miley was immediately back in the pool after her 400m IM, finishing 4th in the 200m free in 2:03.08.
Perth City’s Stephen Milne also became a multiple event winner, winning gold in the 200m freestyle in a mark of 1:50.59. He was back in the pool shortly after contesting the 200m fly where he also topped the podium. His time of 2:01.01 tonight was enough to hold off Irish national record holder Brendan Hyland and his silver medal-garnering effort of 2:01.53.
- Oxford’s Nicole Ryan took the women’s 800m free in 8:58.01.
- The men’s 400m IM saw Sunderland’s Zak Logue wind up on top in 4:28.14.
- Irish World Junior champion Mona McSharry was tonight’s 100m breaststroke winner, as she charged to the wall in 1:08.34.
- David Murphy took the men’s 100m breast in 1:02.07 over Olympian Craig Benson. Benson settled for silver in 1:02.44.
- Edinburgh’s Tain Bruce added another fly win, taking the women’s 200m fly in 2:12.22 over Miley, who was in the pool again and finished in 2:16.11.
- Lucy Hope and Conor Ferguson the women’s and men’s 50m back winners, touching in respective winning times of 28.21 and 25.53. Duncan Scott, two-time silver medalist for Scotland, made an appearance in the sprint back, earning silver in 26.00.
