OLIVER Morgan helped Britain to a silver medal in the men's 4x50m medley relay at the European Short Course final in Romania this week.

The Bishop's Castle swimmer joined Archie Goodburn, Jacob Peters and Matt Richards - following on from the important efforts of Jonathon Adam, Ed Mildred and Alexander Cohoon in the preliminary rounds.

Morgan and Goodburn ensured the team got off to a solid start in the final, with Goodburn returning to the pool for a fourth swim of the day after securing progression from the Men's 100m Breaststroke semi-finals earlier in the session.

Peters dived in next with the Italian team a target to chase, before handing over to anchorman Richards to bring it home for silver.


Morgan said: "It’s my first international medal so I’m super pleased. It was surreal to come away with it and it was a great job from all of the boys there, so that’s really exciting.

“It’s becoming more normal to be part of this GB team and it feels amazing. I think the culture we’ve got is really exciting moving into next year. So let’s see what we can do.”

Morgan is also among 54 swimmers invited on to British Swimming’s World Class Programme (WCP) for the 2023-2024 season with just over nine months to go until the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
