Four Brits progress on fourth morning of Europeans in Berlin

21 August 2014 / 12:29

British swimmers Molly Renshaw, Ben Proud, Jemma Lowe and Stephen Milne all secured progression on the fourth morning of the European Championships in Berlin.

Britain are enjoying a fine time of things in Germany with Roberto Pavoni adding 200m medley bronze on Wednesday night and there could be plenty more finalists to come.

Renshaw was seventh fastest into the 200m breaststroke semi-finals after clocking 2:27.49 minutes while Proud just made it out of the 100m freestyle heats at the last qualifier.

He posted 49.70 seconds for 22nd overall but with only two swimmers per nation allowed to advance to the semi-finals Proud earned a reprieve and will take to the blocks again.

Lowe was a comfortable qualifier in seventh herself to the semi-finals the 100m butterfly while Milne will contest the 800m freestyle final after placing sixth in the heats.

It’s been a busy week for Milne in Berlin with the 20-year-old finishing sixth in the 400m freestyle and an agonising fourth over 1500m the night before his morning swim in the 800m.
