Meanwhile Bath-based swimming Aaron Moores failed to qualify for the final of S14 100m backstroke.

The silver medallist in the event at London 2012 was tipped as a medal chance, but finished fifth in his heat.

The 22-year-old will now turn his attention to the breaststroke - something he has been training hard for.
