DISS Otters rounded off this year's Norfolk County Swimming Championships in style.

Having already won 26 individual medals, the Otters added three more medals at this weekend's county relay gala which was held in the 50m pool at the UEA Sportspark, Norwich.

The men's senior relay squad (Liam Osborne, Steve Dungar, Jamie Rush, Remi Stockwell) swam superbly to exceed all expectations and win silver in the 4x50m medley relay.

The same squad then followed up their medley success with a bronze medal in the men's senior 4x50m freestyle relay.

The same squad was unlucky not to equal their senior counterparts when they narrowly missed out on a bronze medal, finishing fourth in the 4x50m freestyle relay.
