A SUPERB effort from City of Oxford saw them take the top visiting club trophy at the Cardiff International Open Meet.

Ewan Springett led the way with three gold and two silver medals as City saw off the challenge of 66 rival clubs.

Springett triumphed in the 100m butterfly, 100m and 400m freestyle and took silvers in the 100m freestyle and 200m individual medley.

In the girls 200m breaststroke, 14-year-old Emily Wood took gold and broke her own Oxfordshire & North Bucks junior county record in 2mins 37.38secs.

Wood continued her excellent form with silvers in the 100m breaststroke and 200m individual medley.

City’s other gold medallists were Joe Canlan-Shaw (200m and 100m backstroke), David Murphy (400m individual medley), Alex Murphy (50m breaststroke), Fabian Whitbread (200m breaststroke) and Natasha Fenton (200m breaststroke).

In the youngest age category, Lara Mills won two golds in the 200m backstroke and 200m freestyle events and qualified fastest for the 100m freestyle.

However, the nine-year-old had to withdraw from the final to dash to Hillingdon, London to compete for City of Oxford A in the first round of the Milton Keynes and District Junior League Division 1.

Mills helped the A team to finish in third place, while their B team, promoted to Division 1 for the first time, finished sixth.
