On the Final day of the Youth Commonwealth Games in Samoa Edward Baxter swam a lifetime best to secure Gold in the Men's 200m Breastroke. Grant Robins England team said of the race..."the cool cucumber from cockermouth had an awesome race took the first 100 out in control didn’t panic and then turned the afterburners on at 100, he left the field for dead and extended his lead down the final 50 to finish 1st in 2.15.80 and a new best time."
Congratulations to Edward in this his first Major international meet.  Edward also helped the England team secure a 3rd place in the Men's Medlay Relay.

Ed's the Big Guy!!
