England’s Siobhan-Marie O’Connor has impressed the audience with an amazing victory, claiming her second gold at the British Championships in Glasgow and winning the women’s 200m individual medley final.
Second British victory
The 18-year-old swimmer earned the English record with her time of two minutes 9.71 seconds.
“I think I can still go quicker,” said O’Connor in a statement. “I’m really happy to win and get the record, but I went out too quickly and was really struggling in the final few meters. Once I get that sorted I’ll be in a good place.”
This was her second gold from the British Championships after winning the 200m freestyle on the debut of the event.
Meanwhile, six-time British Champion Hannah Miley ended in fourth place.
Francesca Halsall and Adam Brown, on the other hand, defended their titles.
Halsall won a second gold and a fastest qualification time for 100m freestyle final. “I’m feeling really good at the moment and am pleased with both the times I’m doing and the way I’m swimming,” she said in a statement.
