The team with support team Rosemary Kinley and Lee Holland

Record had stood for eight years

The Isle of Man's Men's 4 x 200m Freestyle Relay team has broken a Manx record which has stood for eight years.

Alex Bregazzi, Joel Watterson, Peter Allen and Harry Robinson swam the event final in a time of 7:43.70.

The previous Manx record, set in 2014, was 8:06.38, meaning they knocked 22.28 seconds off it.

It's the third record the foursome have broken in as many days, after they smashed the 4 x 100m Freestyle Relay record twice on Saturday.

In the final, the quartet shared the pool with international elite swimmers from countries across the Commonwealth including Australia, England and Scotland.
