POOLE’S Commonwealth Games star Jacob Peters struck gold seven times to claim the top male swimmer trophy at Plymouth’s Level One National Qualifier.

Peters, competing for the first time since reaching three finals and claiming relay silver on the Gold Coast, won every race he entered in the elite open meet.

The 17-year-old’s magnificent seven included his three Commonwealth Games events – the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly.

He also won the 50m and 100m freestyle and 50m and 100m backstroke, breaking club records in both 100m events.

Peters received his trophy from Plymouth Leander head coach Robin Armayan, who talent-spotted him in a primary schools' gala 10 years ago when the Frenchman was Poole head coach.

The teenager, who starts his A levels on Tuesday, will next hit the water in anger at the European Junior Championships in Helsinki in early July.

A month later he will again swim for Britain at the European Games in Glasgow.

Poole head coach Barry Alldrick said: “Given that Jacob is in heavy training, his results suggest he will be in good shape for the European events.”

Poole club-mate Jazz McCrea will join Peters in Helsinki for her second European juniors along with Alldrick, who has been named as the coach in charge of the Great Britain boys’ team.

McCrea, 16, was in the medals four times in Plymouth.

She won gold in the women’s 50m butterfly, silver in the 100m fly, bronze in the 50m freestyle and 400m individual medley (IM).

Thea O’Keefe and Oli Fairman marked their selection for the Swim England South West team, which will compete at the Bulgarian nationals, with podium places in Plymouth.

O’Keefe led a Poole one-two in the women’s 800m freestyle with runner-up Teagan-Mae Graham taking her turn on the top step after winning the 1,500m freestyle.

Fairman, 15, whose late December birthday made him the youngest competitor in the men’s events, saw off older competitors to collect bronze in the 200m IM.

Robbie Hemmings twice improved his ranking for the British Summer Championships as he won silver in the 15/u 200m backstroke.

He clocked times of 2min 19sec in the heats and 2:18 in the final.

Alan Szczasiuk matched this with silver in the 15/u 50m breaststroke. He improved rankings in that and the 100m event.

Ollie Weston, another of the 14 Poole swimmers in line for individual qualification for the British or English nationals, won bronze in the men’s 50m breaststroke.

Ella McNamara slashed three seconds off her personal best to collect bronze in the 15/u 50m butterfly.

Henry Bramwell-Reeks is now ranked 19th in England after lowering Declan Callahan’s 2009 club record by 10 seconds in the men’s 800m freestyle.

Izzy Hepburn improved her Swim England rankings with personal bests in the 200m and 400m IM.

Poole have also qualified four relay teams for the nationals and expect to have a record 20 swimmers heading to Sheffield after the full list of qualifiers is announced on Friday.
