KIDDERMINSTER swimmer Amy Smith claimed silver medal joy at the Commonwealth Games.

The Wyre Forest Swimming Club member, 27, took second place in the 4x100m freestyle relay along with team mates Siobhan-Marie O'Connor, Fran Halsall and Becki Turner.

The quartet were 4.74 seconds adrift of the Australian gold medalist, who smashed the world record.

Their time of 3:30:98 was almost three-quarters of a second faster than the previous mark.

Yesterday's contest in Glasgow saw Canada take bronze with Scotland fifth ahead of Wales, with Northern Ireland finishing eighth.
