Luke, of Cockermouth Swimming Club, stormed through the heats and semi-final with ease, and set the new national record after leading from the start.
Not content with the one gold medal and British record, the talented teenager repeated the incredible feat in the 200m backstroke.
Turning strongly off the walls, Luke’s competitors were left trailing in his wake as he snatched another victory in 2.06.64.
Luke ended the gala with six medals, winning silver in the 200m butterfly in a personal best 2.07.87, as well as the 100m butterfly and 400m individual medley.
The incredible medal haul was complete when Luke grabbed third in the 200m individual medley.
