Bracknell swimmer Andrew Willis will be one of two Brits going for a gold medal tomorrow after recording a lifetime best in finishing second in the 200m breaststroke semi-final this evening.
Andrew, a member of Bracknell and Wokingham swimming club, will join his Team GB colleague Michael Jamieson in the final tomorrow evening.
A crowd from the swimming club gathered at Bracknell Leisure Centre in Bagshot Road to cheer him on.
He narrowly missed out on first place but recorded his best ever time of 2:08:47, just behind the new British record if 2:08.20 set by his team mate - and close friend - Jamieson in the other semi-final.
Michael smashed the British record for the second time today after setting it in the heats this morning.
The final starts at 7.30pm.
