Rico’s standout performance came in the fly where he finished fourth with a personal best of 2.07.10.

He had earlier claimed a fly PB of 2.07.32 in the heats and a 200m individual medley PB of 2.10.55.

He clocked 4.44.36 in the 400m individual medley.

This was a great experience for Rico, a former Boston ASC competitor, to swim and meet lots of Olympians, such as Adam Peaty, Tom Dean, James Guy and Duncan Scott, who he managed to have his picture taken with.

Rico is now attempting to claim more qualifying times for this summer’s British Championships, held in July.

He has already qualified for four events, the 200m fly, 100m fly, 400m individual medley and 200m individual medley.
