Brett won the Gold in the 200m freestyle Pan-Am Games record time of 1:47.18, and Shaune came right behind, winning Silver with a time of 1:48.29.

Both brothers beat the old record, set by Brazilian Gustavo Borges in 1995.

The Pan American Games are the second largest multi-sport event after the Summer Olympic Games, but now the brothers will have their sights set on the London Olympics next year.

Brett said: “I’m feeling pretty good- this is really special what everyone did so I don’t know what to say because it is the first time something like this has happened, so it’s really very amazing, to say the least.”

Shaune added: “I’m feeling really good. It’s nice to be home and back around all my friends. It’s a very proud moment so it’s nice to come back. It’s been a great experience for me. Training with my brother has definitely been a unique time and one where we go down in making history,”

David (Jim) Fraser said: “I’m very proud.”
