  • Amy Brown struck gold six times to lead a 19-medal haul for Swim Bournemouth at the Beckenham Easter Meet in London’s Olympic pool.

Her wins included a clean sweep of the 14yrs backstroke gold medals.

She came within 0.15sec of a second clean sweep in the breaststroke, touching first in the 50m and 100m but having to settle for silver in the 200m behind City of Birmingham’s Ellie Sibbald-Perkins.

Brown’s six of the best also included gold in the 400m individual medley (IM).

Team-mate Freddie Hodgetts was another podium regular with three gold and three silver medals.

He finished almost three seconds clear in the 100m in 1:08.78 and 1.78 ahead in the 200m in 2:32.02 – times that would have placed him first and second in the 16yrs age group.
