A WONDERFUL display by Reuben Eley saw him take medals at all six events he competed in at an open meeting in Barrow.

The nine-year-old, who swims for Ulverston, took on entrants from across the country and performed superbly against a high standard of opposition

At 50 and 100 backstroke and freestyle he reigned supreme, dominating the pace and timing his finishes to perfection.

At 100 individual medley he gave a display of superb all round swimming to take another comfortable win and completed his day with a silver for his 50 butterfly.

Annabel Crayston and Fergus Bell were also outstanding as they each had a trio of gold medal swims.

Crayston was at her best in backstroke, dominating both the 50 and 100 events and cruising to comfortable victories.

She then used all her tactical skills for another fine win in the 100 individual medley and went on to add a silver for her 50 butterfly.

Bell had similar results, chalking up outstanding wins at 50 and 100 backstroke then following that up with a remarkable performance in the 100 freestyle, storming to a resounding victory by a clear three seconds.

And he was still not finished as he took silver in the 50 freestyle together with a bronze for his 100 individual medley.

Double gold medallists Rebecca Duckworth and Grace Weaver were also impressive.

Duckworth was untouchable at breaststroke, starting with the 50m sprint where she forced the pace then moved up a gear and went on to take a well earned win.

Her 100m effort was even better as she set a devastating pace, pulling clear then increasing her lead to win with ease.

She too added a bronze to her clutch with a fine swim in the 50 butterfly sprint.

Weaver was in her element in the freestyle and her power and talent came to the fore in the 50m sprint where she hit the finish two seconds ahead of her opponents.

Her 100 freestyle was a carbon copy in which she set the pace, dominated the tactics and took gold with a substantial lead.

Still not content she added two silver and a bronze to her score.

Six other swimmers all won a gold medals and prominent amongst these was Olivia Sturgeon who made a supreme effort at 50 butterfly for her gold but had to settle for silver at 50 backstroke, 50 and 100 breaststroke and 100 individual medley, and a bronze for 100 freestyle.

Abigail Caine had similar success with a brilliant 100 backstroke gold followed by silver for 50 butterfly, 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle.

Gold medals also went to Jay Mulama for his 50 butterfly along with a pair of silvers and a bronze, followed by Malachy Kenny with a win at 50 Butterfly and a bronze.

Seth Kelly was another who achieved gold this time for 100 backstroke then added a silver and two bronze, and Adam Jones completed the collection of golds with a dazzling 100 butterfly and then picked up a silver.
