Gold for Team GB

World Aquatics Championship

The team of Danny Wallace, Robbie Renwick, Calum Jarvis and James Guy have clinched gold for Team GB in the final of the men's 4x200m at the Swimming World Championships in Kazan, Russia.

It was a slow start from the Brits and the American's led up to the final 50m, but a superbly timed swim from James Guy clawed back over 1.5 seconds in the final 200m to give Team GB their seventh gold medal of the tournament.

Britain's men have never won a men's World Championship relay gold before...and this is an Olympic event too!

It's Germany's first world swimming champion for six years.

British qualifier

World Aquatics Championship

Team GB have a reason to be proud... Ben Proud! The 20 year old has swum 21.88 and finished third in his semi-final for the men's 50m freestyle. He qualifies fifth fastest overall.

Speaking to Sharon Davies after he says "it's great to get the buzz from an excited crowd...I wasn't expecting to get to the final, and if I can execute the race well tomorrow I'll hopefully get close to my PB"

He's the fastest Brit ever in the event - and only three have swam the event under 22 seconds.
