Catachpole, 18, was also victorious in the men’s MC S14 100m butterfly final, winning gold with 932 points in 1:00.36, as well as silver in the 100m backstroke and bronze in the 200m freestyle, 100m freestyle and 200m IM.

Both have subsequently been selected in the 26-strong GB squad for the World Championships.
