NIAMH Robinson returns to the pool tomorrow after impressing on her Commonwealth Games debut on Thursday.

The 14-year-old from Darwen, competing for the Isle of Man, set a new personal best as she reached the semi finals of the 50m breaststroke.

Robinson, a member of Accrington-based Pioneer 79 Swimming Club, finished in seventh place having earlier clocked 32.28secs in her heat.

The former Avondale Primary School pupil competes in the 200m breaststroke heats this morning. She is also competing in the 50m butterfly, 50m backstroke, 100m breaststroke and 200m individual medley.
