The Men's 50m Butterfly was an even closer event in which 0.1s separated the first three - Ben Proud (ENS, 22.26), Marius Kusch (TOR, 22.32) and Dylan Carter (LON, 22.36).

Another dominant performance by Siobhan Haughey (ENS, 1:52.25) saw her finish the Women's 200m Freestyle 3.16s ahead of her nearest challenger, Leah Neale (DCT).
