There were medals galore for University of Bath-based swimmers at the Victoria State Championships in Melbourne, Australia.

World University Games champion Jess Dickons led the way, winning gold in the 200m butterfly. The University of Bath Sports Performance student beat Beijing 2008 Olympian and 2011 World Championships silver medallist Ellen Gandy into second place.

Michael Jamieson made it a Bath Intensive Training Centre double on the final day of the championships, striking gold in the 200m breaststroke.  Fellow Bath ITC swimmer Andrew Willis, a Chemical Engineering student at the University, took bronze in the same event.

Jamieson, the Commonwealth Games silver medallist in the 200m breaststroke, also took silver in the 100m event in Melbourne, with Willis finishing just outside the medals in fourth.

Siobhan-Marie O’Connor won silver in the 200m individual medley and bronze in the 400m individual medley. There was also a bronze for Chris Walker-Hebborn in the 200m backstroke.
