Lily did however split a 1:24 in the first 100m Fly of her 400m IM so there is definitely a lot more to come there!!

Gabby made an unexpected appearance, replacing Jacy in the 200m Brst, winning the Gold medal in 3:11.27, narrowly missing her Dorset Champs PB but racing in a training suit. She also won the HOT HEEEAAAT!!!
