Thomas Bags Bronze As She Sets Sights On Worlds

Alys Thomas added to Britain’s medal haul at the Japan Open with bronze in the 50m butterfly.

The Swansea Aquatics swimmer clocked a personal best of 26.79secs at the Tatsumi International Pool in Tokyo.

Thomas touched just behind the Japanese duo of Rikako Ikee (25.78) and Suyuki Ouchi (26.63).

The 26-year-old is one of five Welsh swimmers who have qualified for the World Championships in Budapest in July.

Thomas – who has been on a training camp in Thailand with her team-mates – booked her place by winning the British 100m butterfly title.

Georgia Davies – another Welsh swimmer bound for Hungary – clocked 1:01.10 to win the women’s 100m backstroke B final.

James Guy, Adam Peaty, Ben Proud and Imogen Clark all won gold for Britain on the second days of the meet in Tokyo.
