That means Hynd, already the Olympic, Word and European title holder, could not only complete his grand slam of titles tonight, but also knows the world record is in his sights too.

Hynd was five seconds ahead of nearest challenger, Australia’s Jesse Aungles, and now prepares for this evening’s final at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre at 7.37pm.
