Hughes wins Open Water silver in Turkey

26 July 2013

Caleb Hughes landed silver for the British Gas GBR Swimming Team on the opening day of the 2013 European Junior Open Water Championships in Kocaeli, Turkey.

The 17-year old Hatfield swimmer swam a great tactical race, staying in the top five throughout the junior (17-18yrs) 7.5km race before passing three swimmers in the final 500m to clinch his medal in 1:25:59.13.

Russia’s Anton Evsikov won gold in 1:25:57.31 while Lincoln Vulcans swimmer Oliver Bitowt was 27th in 1:39:30.00.

“It was a physical race but I was able to maintain my position throughout,” said Hughes, who won 1500m Freestyle bronze in the pool at the European Junior Championships in Poznan earlier in July.

“The last 800m was really tough but I just finished as fast as I could. I had nothing left to give.”

Windsor’s Lucinda Campbell was the top British finisher in the women’s 7.5km as she came seventh in 1:35:00.75.

Beckenham swimmer Lauren Walton also secured a top-15 finish as she placed 13th in 1:37:17.15.
