James Guy and Ben Proud win World Cup silvers in Doha

James Guy and Ben Proud both won two silver medals at the 2016 FINA World Cup in Doha, Qatar.

Guy touched second in both the 200m and 400m Freestyle while Proud won 50m Free and 50m Butterfly silvers.

Both English swimmers have been regulars on the World Cup series this season.

Guy has reached the podium in both the 200m and 400m Free at all five legs at which he has competed this year.

He set his British record 1:42.22 to win gold at the Berlin leg in August.

And while he couldn’t match that in Doha, the Millfield swimmer’s 1:43.17 earned him second behind South Africa’s Chad Le Clos (1:42.84).

The Brit also clocked 3:41.96 to finish behind South Africa’s Myles Brown (3:39.78) in the 400m Free.

Proud clocks season’s best 50m Fly

Plymouth Leander swimmer Proud set his fastest time of the season as he won silver in the 50m Fly.

The 22-year old was just 0.18 outside his British record as he touched in 22.57 behind Le Clos (22.36).

Proud returned on the second day with a 21.22 effort behind Russia’s Vladimir Morozov (21.05) in the 50m Free final.
