But in the final their changeovers were perfect and they were thrilled to win. The team gained a time of 43.89 which is the 2nd fasted time ever for an under 23 British team. It is also under the qualifying standard for the World Senior Championships. Lucy and the team were a little surprised but extremely pleased!
