Bermuda swimmer Madelyn Moore said the Commonwealth Games could not have gone much better for her after setting a new national record and reaching two semi-finals.

Moore competes in her final event tomorrow, the 50 metres backstroke, when she looks to qualify for her third semi-final in Birmingham.

She raced in the 50 freestyle semis on Saturday setting a new national record in 25.72sec, and the 50 butterfly semis last night.

Although she did not advance to the semis in the 100 freestyle this morning, finishing seventh in her heat, she was encouraged by her time of 56.98

“I was really pleased with my race,” Moore told Bernews. “It’s only the third time I’ve gone 56 [seconds].

“It’s been a great Games for me. I was super happy with setting a personal best in my main even [the 50 freestyle]. Although the 50 fly didn’t go exactly how I wanted [in the semi-finals] last night, I still can’t be mad at it.”

Bermuda teammates Emma Harvey [50 backstroke] and her brother Jack Harvey [200 backstroke] also compete tomorrow.
