Guy spurs Millfield to dramatic relay gold

James Guy

Commonwealth bronze medallist James Guy clocked a 49.55 final leg split to inspire Millfield to gold in a nail-biting 4x100m Freestyle Relay to close the opening finals session of the 2014 British Gas ASA National Youth Championships in Sheffield.

Fraser Minnican (52.53), Daniel Speers (51.25) and George Mather (52.38) joined Guy on the podium as Millfield took the touch in 3:25.71 ahead of Carnegie (3:25.75) and Plymouth Leander (3:25.99).

There was also a breathtaking finish to the Boys 17/18 Years 400m Individual Medley final as Caleb Hughes sliced five seconds off his personal best to overhaul Minnican in the last 5m.

Other impressive winners on the opening night included City of Sheffield’s Eleanor Faulkner in the 19 Years / Over 200m Freestyle and brothers Joseph and Max Litchfield in the 15/16 Years and 19 Years / Over 400m Individual Medley respectively.
