Thomas took her fourth gold at Manchester 2002

Thomas was in a class of her own as she finished in a time of 2:08.40, but the home crowd were given reason to cheer with Georgie Lee and Margaretha Pedder taking the silver and the bronze medals for England.

Thomas, who had only managed silver at Kuala Lumpur, seemed to be relieved it was all over: “I wouldn’t quite call that comfortable. It was a pretty tough race. I’m getting tired now.”

Lee was delighted to get the silver to add to the bronze she picked up in Kuala Lumpur: “When you go to a major championships like this, a medal is what you want, so I’m really pleased.”

Thomas’ other gold medals came in the 50m butterfly, 100m butterfly and the 4x100m freestyle relay.
