The Plymouth-based swimmer won the 50m butterfly in 25.71sec. and breaststroke in 28.96, plus the 100m equivalents in 56.32 and 1-04.59 respectively.

Currently in heavy training, he qualified for the 200m breaststroke final but pulled out to concentrate on other events.

Meanwhile, younger brother Ronny swam at the Swansea Aquatics long-course qualifier amid a heavy training block of his own.

The Mount Kelly student posted a 50m butterfly PB of 27.84 and just missed out on bronze in the 50m breaststroke, clocking 30.18. He placed fifth in the 100m breast with 1-07.43.

Both now look forward to the British Championships in early April.
