20th August 2014

Roberto Pavoni won bronze in the 200m Individual Medley at the European Championships in Berlin.  
 
The British Champion had an impressive swim to finish third in 1:58.22. 
 
The Loughborough swimmer was never out of the medals after the first 50m as he kept pace with the rest of the front runners to finish 0.12 seconds off the pace.
 
Gold was won by Laszlo Cseh (1:58.10) and silver by Philip Heintz (1:58.17). 
 
In the 1500m Freestyle Stephen Milne touched in 14:53.83 to finish just outside the medals in fourth place. British team mate Jay Lelliott clocked 14:58.74 for fifth.  
 
Ross Murdoch and Andrew Willis went head to head in the 200m Breaststroke semi-final, with Murdoch touching just ahead of Willis to go through as the fastest qualifier. The pair will be split in tomorrow’s final by Germany’s Marco Koch. 
 
Also progressing to tomorrow’s finals are Jazz Carlin (800m Freestyle), Aimee Willmott (200m Individual Medley), Georgia Davies (100m Backstroke) and Chris Walker-Hebborn (50m Backstroke).
