Guernsey's Charlie-Joe Hallet just missed out on a place in the 50m breaststroke. He swam in the same heat as multiple Olympic champion Adam Peaty.


After his sixth placed finish in the all-around final, Jersey gymnast Daniel Lee received a late call up to participate in the rings final. is score of 12.9 from the judges was enough for seventh place.
