In the same event, Alexis Militis, who was drawn in a stronger heat, missed his PB by 0.2 secs and consequently couldn’t record a time good enough to make it through either.

Du Feu (22) was swimming in heat three and his time of 54.02 secs – 0.7 secs better than his previous best time – put him in first place, ahead of Guernsey’s Jeremy Osborne, who finished closely behind with a time of 54.55 secs.

Meanwhile, firefighter Militis (25) finished his heat in seventh with a time of 52.94 secs.

His heat, which was notably faster than du Feu’s, was won by England’s Simon Burnett in 50.42 secs.

The men’s team, which also has Simon Le Couilliard and Daniel Halksworth in it, will be competing in the 4x200m freestyle later today.

Swimming team manager and coach Paul du Feu said: ‘This was a bonus for the lads really because we are looking forward to the final of the relay tonight.’ Jersey go straight into the final because of the number of entries into the event.

Paul added: ‘Both of the lads are delighted with their swims, especially Liam, who made sure that he beat Guersney’s Jeremy Osborne by a fraction of a second.

They had a good morning in the pool and I know they are looking forward to tonight, when we will make sure we beat Guernsey again and maybe this time give Singapore a bit more of a race.’
