Fullalove claims third Youth Olympic silver
21 August 2014
Jess Fullalove claimed her third medal of the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games by winning silver in the 50m Backstroke.
The 18-year old touched in a personal best 28.66 to add 50m Backstroke silver to the 100m Backstroke and 4x100m Medley Relay silver medals she won earlier in the week.
Fullalove said: "It was my last swim of the meet so I am really happy to end on a high with a silver medal and a personal best - I can't ask for any more than that.
"It’s a bit frustrating not to be able to get that gold medal but I am happy with three silvers for the meet as it has been a really long season.
"I'm looking forward to enjoying the village and getting stuck into the culture and education programme now that I have finished."
Charlotte Atkinson successfully negotiated her 100m Butterfly semi-final. She finished third which placed her sixth fastest for the final tomorrow night.
Meanwhile in the men's 100m Freestyle semi-finals Duncan Scott made it through to the final tomorrow night after finishing third in his heat, while teammate Miles Munro just missed out.
