The former Loughborough College learners both made the podium in the men’s and women's events respectively.

Kilty ran a storming third leg as Great Britain men’s team just missed out on gold by a hundredth of a second as Italy took victory on the line.

In the women’s event Loughborough College alumna Daryll Neita’s brilliant final leg helped Great Britain to an empathic bronze medal finish.
