Brée secured her third and fourth wins of the week in style in the 50m butterfly and 200m individual medley as she bids to emulate her incredible 14 golds in the Isle of Man two years ago.Simon Le Couilliard recorded a sensational personal best to win the 100m butterfly in a high-quality race that saw Commonwealth swimmer Alexis Militis finish down in third.The 16-year-old, who is conditioned for racing in the European Youth Olympics in Paris at the end of the month, said: ‘It was a great swim because I’m not rested and shaved down like the others.

‘I’m not doing the 100m at the Youth Olympics, but it shows I’ve got the speed, so maybe I could get a relay place.

Hopefully I’ll get a medal in the 200 fly, but just reaching a final would be good.’The standard at the Island Games has risen a lot, which is great.

Guys from the Cayman Islands and Bermuda are winning and they are really good swimmers.’Jersey’s other swimming gold came from the 4x50m medley relay squad of Rosie Barrett, Sarah-Jane Poingdestre, Brée and Lauren Le Mière.The men’s 4x50m freestyle relay squad of Liam du Feu, Militis, Nick Hawkshaw and Le Couilliard broke the Abacus Island record to finish second behind Bermuda.Elsewhere there was a second silver of the week for Poingdestre in the 200m breaststroke, in which 13-year-old Victoria Rebours finished fourth.
