James Guy wins double gold at World Cup in Moscow

Double Olympic silver medallist James Guy scooped two golds at the FINA World Cup in Moscow.

Repeating his result from Berlin last week, Guy took the touch in the 200m and 400m Freestyle.

The Millfield swimmer clocked 3:40.70 in the final of the 400m, with Australia’s Bobby Hurley second in 3:42.76.

It was a closer race in the 200m final, with Guy coming home in 1:43.77 ahead of Hurley’s 1:44.64.

The English swimmer also set a 100m Butterfly PB in Moscow. Guy moved to fourth in the British all-time rankings with a 50.85 effort in the heats. He went on to finish fourth in the final in 51.50.

Adam Barrett lands three medals in Moscow

British record holder Adam Barrett finished two better than Guy in the same final, ducking under 50 seconds for the third time.

After 49.31 and 49.60 efforts at the World Cup legs in Chartres and Berlin, Barrett won silver in Moscow in 49.83.

The Loughborough University swimmer also collected silver in the 100m Freestyle and bronze in the 50m Butterfly.

He became only the fourth British swimmer to break 47 seconds in the former, setting 46.99 in the final.

Barrett also set a PB in the 50m Fly, finishing third in 22.51 – just 0.12 seconds shy of Ben Proud’s British record from last year’s ASA National Winter Meet in Sheffield.
