Tianni Gillmour finished just behind Evans in the 400 to come 4th place. She also competed in the 100 butterfly where she finished 8th, and a very close 4th in the 200 in a new best time of 2.09.30!

After just missing out on the podium success last year it's great to see Carla in and amongst the medals! Carla also competed in the 50 free, 100 free, 200m free and 50 butterfly and finished just short of the finals.
