A double winner on day one, Garioch’s Hannah Miley did it again on the second day of the Scottish Gas National Open Championships at Tollcross in Glasgow.

In the 200m individual medley, the Garicoh 23-year-old clocked 2:13.05 and she added another in the 800m freestyle in 8:45.91.

Edinburgh Unversity’s 
Kathry Johnstone), a 2010 Commonwealth Games swimmer, won the 100m breaststroke in 1:08.53.

But Warrender’s Craig Benson, who competed at London 2012, missed out on a medal in the 50m breaststroke.

Stirling University’s Dan Sliwinski, an Englishman who missed out on the Olympics last year through a shoulder injury, confirmed he has not lost his appetite for the sport by winning the 50m breaststroke in 28.09.

West Dunbartonshire’s Ross Murdoch was second in 28.18 and Benson had to make do with ninth in 29.96.

Robbie Renwick, the Commonwealth Games 200m freestyle Champion, delighted the home crowd with a comfortable win in the 400m freestyle.

Swimming for the City of Glasgow, Renwick had only qualified second behind Perth teenager Stephen Milne, but the two-time Olympian put the youngster in his place and took the gold in 3:49.84. Milne settled for silver in 3:56.59.

“I was really happy with today’s time,” he said, “I wasn’t too sure of my form coming into the event but a now I’m really looking forward to the world championships trials in Sheffield in two weeks’ time.”
