JACOB Peters celebrated his selection for England’s Commonwealth Games team by reaching six finals on two continents in nine days.

The Poole 17-year-old was the youngest finalist in the men’s 100m and 200m butterfly at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Austin, Texas, against international-standard opponents.

Peters, one of an eight-strong British team with Poole coach Barry Alldrick among the three GB coaches, came seventh in both in times of 54.53 and 2:01.30.

The 200m was won by the USA’s Chase Kalistz, a double world champion and Olympic silver medallist.

Peters was also fifth in the 50m butterfly semi-finals in 24.29, just 0.01sec outside the Dorset record he set at last month’s Swim England Championships.

Within three days of touching down from Texas, Peters and Alldrick were on their way to Antwerp with seven other Poole swimmers for the Flanders Cup.

The British age group record holder, who was training through these meets, again made all three butterfly finals against international opposition, finishing fourth, fifth and seventh respectively in the 100m, 200m and 50m.

Team-mate Teagan-Mae Graham was seventh in the women’s 1500m freestyle while European junior semi-finalist Jazz McCrea was second in the 50m butterfly B final.

Alldrick said: “Most of all this was a team trip and an opportunity to observe some of the world’s best swimmers and come back inspired to work hard, keep progressing and start making national finals and junior or senior teams.”

• Poole’s Kath Baker, Ben Cutbush and Aimie Quarrie each broke a short-course club record in the inaugural Poole and West Dorset Long Course Distance ‘Reverse’ Meet at Dorchester.

The meet was designed to provide a rare opportunity for girls to swim 1500m and boys to swim 800m freestyle – a reverse of the events on offer at next month’s Dorset distance championships.

It was only open to members of the Poole and West Dorset clubs.

Baker, 29, set the fastest time in all age groups to win the 19 and over 1500m in a senior record of 18:22.97.

Quarrie was second quickest overall as she won the 13yrs 1500m in 18:41.30, an age group record.

Holly Harris was the only other girl under 19 minutes, winning the 14yrs event in 18:59.05.

Other age group winners were Claire Stuhlmacher (11/u, 20:18.74), Molly Goddard (12yrs, 19:31.15) and Lucy Purcell (15yrs, 20:04.43).

Cutbush was the fastest boy, winning the 15/u 800m in 9:07.72, a junior record.

Other winners were Zack Studley (11/u, 10:31.83), Ryan Openshaw (12yrs, 9:49.83), Robbie Hemmings (13yrs, 9:30.59), Liam Openshaw (14yrs, 9:24.97) and Glenn Olding (19/o, 9:44.57).
