OLYMPICS Team GB & Team Bath gold rush continues

Anna Hopkin swimmingJames Guy won his second gold medal of Tokyo 2020 and University of Bath graduate Anna Hopkin was also crowned as Olympic champion as Team GB’s gold rush in the swimming pool continued in magnificent style this morning.

Victory came in world-record time too as, after being given a strong start to the mixed 4x100m medley relay final by Kathleen Dawson and Adam Peaty, British Swimming National Centre Bath star Guy swam a stunning butterfly split of 50.0 to give freestyler Hopkin a lead that she consolidated magnificently with a 52.0 leg to bring the team home in an incredible time of 3:37.58.

Freya Anderson – who, like Guy, is coached by David McNulty at the Team Bath Sports Training Village – is also bringing home a gold medal after her excellent anchor leg for GB in the relay heats.

After winning two silver medals at Rio 2016, Guy is now a double Olympic Champion having won gold alongside training partner Tom Dean, fellow Bath-based swimmer Matt Richards and Duncan Scott in the 4x200m freestyle relay.
