Swansea's Georgia Davies sets new record at the World Short-Course swimming Championships
SWANSEA’S Georgia Davies set a new Welsh record in the 100m backstroke at the World Short-Course swimming Championships in Istanbul – but narrowly missed out on a medal.
The Swansea ITC swimmer was in contention to the end but was edged out of the top three by just 0.14secs in 57.32.
The 22-year-old said: “I was disappointed at the Olympics because I gave everything in the heat so when it came to the semi-final I didn’t have much left.
“So for me coming here was about – can I go for best times, pushing myself and can I improve as I go and not give everything at the early stages.”
Welshman Ieuan Lloyd set his third Welsh record in two days as he led off the 4x200m freestyle squad in 1:45.24. The quartet finished seventh.
