RECORD I GYMRU!
The relay group made up of Joe Small, Kyle Booth, Lewis Fraser and Matthew Richards chased down England, Australia and Scotland to break the record set by Marco Loughran, Rob Holderness, Tom Laxton and Calum Jarvis at the Glasgow Games.
After Small, Booth and Fraser had consolidated our hold on fourth, Richards was tasked with hunting serial medallist Duncan Scott down on the final leg. Richards was closing in on his Team GB rival, but ran out of water to make up the difference as our team finished with an impressive time of 3:36.43.
