Exeter swimmer Liam Tancock collected silver medals in both the 50m and 100m backstroke at the British Swimming Championships in Glasgow.
The 28-year-old finished second to compatriot Chris Walker-Hebborn over both distances, clocking 54.51secs over 100m, and 25.38 over the shorter distance.
Walker-Hebborn – the same man who beat Tancock over 100m in last year’s championships – managed a time of 53.82 in the longer distance and 25.09 in the 50m.
That is still more than a second off Tancock’s 50m world record of 24.04, while the double world champion’s 100m national record of 52.73 also still stands.
But the Exonian conceded he was struggling for form ahead of July’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
"I've had injury problems and they took a while to get diagnosed and fixed but I'm not making excuses,” said Tancock.
“I've had a dip but can come back strong again."
