Teenage Droitwich swimmer Richards comes third in open adult final at Swim Wales Winter Championships

THERE was more success for Droitwich Spa swimming ace Matt Richards who came third in the open adult final at the Swim Wales Winter Championships.

The 14-year-old travelled to Swansea to take part in the 200m freestyle (long course) and in his heat he broke the all-time British record for his age group of one minute, 53.34 seconds – clocking 1.52.27.

Due to the nature of his fast time Richards was not put in the 11-14yrs or 15-16yrs final, he was put into the adult final.

Richards proved to be more than competitive, coming third behind two 21-year-olds with a stunning time of 1.51.29.
