He followed that up with another personal best swim in the 100m butterfly, earning a third place medal.

Ten-year-old Francis Dermody snapped up a silver in the 10-year-old boys 50m backstroke, with a fantastic personal best and also took home a third place in the 50m breaststroke.

Nine-year-old Joseph Lilley continued to impress, powering home in second place in the boys 50m breaststroke.

Lilley also took sixth place in the 50m backstroke.
