Dominant Loughborough University storm to another relay victoryDecember 7, 2019
Loughborough University continued their dominance of the National Winter Championships relays with victory in the Women’s 200m Medley.
Jocelyn Ulyett and Emily Crane both picked up their second gold medals of the evening alongside Emily Barclay and Candice Hall.
The Loughborough team clocked 1:48.63 to finish 2.12 seconds clear of the rest of the field.
Ulyett, who set a new English record on her way to gold in the 100m Breaststroke earlier in the evening, said: “I mean who doesn’t love a good relay?
“It’s great to get up onto the blocks with the girls, and it was a really good win.
“It’s great fun to train with the girls. We all get on so well – we all understand each other and can push each other on in hard sets. It’s great to have such a positive squad.”
Mount Kelly took second spot as Leah Whittaker, Hazal Ozkan, Katelyn Bergin and Macy Lawrence finished in a time of 1:50.75.
The City of Manchester team of Chloe Golding, Denisa-Elena Gogu, Jessica Calderbank and Emily Peck, claimed the bronze medal in 1:53.32.
