David Murphy (18) of City of Oxford SC, flew to Austin, Texas as part of a 12 strong Junior GB team to compete in the Austin leg of the Arena Pro Swim Series 2017.
Swimming in his two main events (200/100brst) Murphy posted a personal best in the A final of the 100m Breaststroke (1.01.65). This time breaks the open Oxford and North Bucks county record. It also breaks the South East Region record which coincidentally was held by his brother, Alex Murphy.
As part of the Target Tokyo Programme the Austin meet gave Murphy valuable International experience racing against Olympians from around the world.
Murphy is a finalist for the Junior Sports Person Award to be announced Jan 27th at the Kassam Stadium.
