British swimmers hoping for more medals

December 16, 2012 12:35 pm

The final morning of the World Short-Course Championships concluded with no further British finalists into Sunday night's last session of the meet in Istanbul.

Great Britain have claimed four medals so far this week and they may well add to that on Sunday evening.

Fran Halsall, Jemma Lowe and Georgia Davies are all in with a chance of a visit to the podium, Lowe for the second time after her bronze in the 200m butterfly earlier this week.

Some swimmers have also managed to swim personal bests.

On Sunday morning City of Sheffield pair Rebecca Turner and Eleanor Faulkner were 11th and 22nd respectively in the 200m freestyle, a best of one minute 58.69 seconds for the latter.

There were also bests for Rob Pavoni and senior international debutant Matthew Johnson, of whom much is expected, in the 200m butterfly. So too Sophie Allen in the 200m breaststroke while Hannah Miley did her best time since 2009.

The men's 4x100m medley relay were 11th while Olympic finalist Dan Fogg's position will be confirmed after the fastest heat of the 1500m freestyle on Sunday night.
