Wisbech teenage swimmer Liam Knight achieved a massive haul of six regional championships gold medals.

Knight (pictured) swims for City of Peterborough (COPS) and helped them to finish second in the club overall medal table including 15 golds.

The championships were hosted at the newly built 50m Luton Pool which hosted the ITV 1 Splash series.

On day one there was a hat-trick of victories for Knight.

Backstroke specialist Knight won the 50m and 100m events in emphatic fashion, as well as touching first in the 200m IM. He then was a vital part of the gold-winning fantastic performance in the Men’s 4 x 100 IM relay, taking on the breaststroke leg.

A magnificent performance by the men’s 4 x 200m freestyle A team (Knight, Matthew Brigham, Josh Aylett and Dan Brown) earned them bronze.

On day two he struck gold three more times, enjoying backstroke success over 200m as well as winning the 17+years 50m and 100m fly.

Ben Negus, COPS head coach, said; “We now look forward to the national championships in 12 weeks time.

“Swimmers have got relay success to fight for and individual swim at British and Welsh nationals to focus on so our best and hardest block of work starts now in training.”
