Fran Halsall continued her excellent FINA World Cup series form with a further two medals as the action moved to Singapore.

The British team claimed eight medals on day one in Singapore but once again the star of the show was Halsall, the double Commonwealth champion having claimed three golds, one silver and two British records in from the previous World Cup event in Tokyo.

Sprinter Halsall took gold in the 50m freestyle with a time of 23.80 seconds, also claiming silver in the 50m backstroke with compatriot Georgia Davies finishing with bronze in the same event.

Elsewhere, Siobhan-Marie O'Connor took 200m individual medley silver, as did Andrew Willis in the 200m breaststroke.

Completing an impressive medal haul for Great Britain were Jazz Carlin (800m freestyle), Adam Barrett (100m freestyle) and Liam Tancock (100m individual medley) who all won bronze medals in their respective events.
