New Zealand swimmers have picked up three medals on the opening night of finals in the Mare Nostrum series in Barcelona.

World short course champion Lauren Boyle finished second in the 800 freestyle, Gareth Kean was second in the 200 backstroke and Glenn Snyders placed third in the 100 breaststroke.

The Aqua Blacks are competing in two of the three meets that make up the annual Mare Nostrum series - named after the ancient Roman name for the Mediterranean Sea.
