Bury swimmer James Guy has won a trio of medals at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham - and is getting ready to go for his fourth today, Tuesday.

The 26-year-old has struck silver for Team England in both the 4x100m freestyle and 4x200m freestyle relay events.

The veteran swimmer also claimed bronze in the 200m butterfly final.

He will add the medals to the impressive haul of honours he has been awarded in his career, which includes Olympic, world and previous Commonwealth titles.

Today, Guy will be returning to the pool to compete in the 100m butterfly final.

Speaking about his win in the 4x100m freestyle relay on Saturday he said: “This morning and last night I wasn’t feeling that good in the water.

“I knew it was going to be hard racing again after the World Championships a few weeks ago but what I've realised here is that the times aren't that fast, it’s how you race it.

“To get on the podium in the outside lane, it’s always good fun.

“There were a few doubts this morning off the heat swim but the slower you try and go in fly, the harder is it.”

Guy made his debut on the international scene back in 2013, winning his first major medal the following year at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

His three medals in Birmingham give him a total of nine Commonwealth Games medals.

Yesterday, Monday, Guy also urged his team member Adam Peaty not to let his fourth-place result in the 100m breaststroke on Sunday define him after the double Olympic champion declared himself “heartbroken”.
