Lizzie Simmonds struck gold once again on the Mare Nostrum tour with a solid performance in the Women’s 200m Backstroke in Monaco.

Simmonds (British Gas ITC Loughborough) was untroubled as she touched home in 2:09.10 way ahead of silver placed Sinead Russell of Canada in 2:13.09.

Loughborough team mate Fran Halsall showed her fighting spirit in the Women’s 100m Butterfly in a head-to-head with Katerine Savard of Canada.
