11 June 2014

British athletes continued their success in the 2014 Mare Nostrum series as round two got underway in Canet.

Jazz Carlin (Swansea University) took gold in the 800m Freestyle setting a new meet record in 8:20.68. Spain's Beatriz Gomez Cortes was second in 8:29.83 and France’s Coralie Balmy was third in 8:32.36. 

In one of the closest races of the day Ross Murdoch (University of Stirling) and Adam Peaty (City of Derby) once again showed there was little between them as they went head to head in the 100m Breaststroke.
