WISBECH swimming star Liam Knight warmed up for the European Junior Championships on July 4 with a dominant display at the British Gas East Region Youth Championships at the Basildon Sports Village last week.

The talented 17 year-old won four gold medals and two silvers and helped his Peterborough club to a creditable third place overall behind Hatfield and Ipswich.

Knight took first places in the 50m, 100m and 200m backstroke and the 400 medley and said: “Times wise it was not great because I had been training through the weekend but to take four gold medals was pretty good. I am now looking forward to the European championships in July.”
