Henry secures gold in Sheffield

19th July 2012

Paralympian Rhiannon Henry powered home to win the MC 200m Individual Medley on day three of the British Gas ASA MC National Championships at Ponds Forge.

The City of Manchester Aquatics star, who swims in the S13 classification, put in a dominant unrested performance to secure the gold medal.

With a bit of rest behind me who knows what will happen.

“It was a pretty tough race,” said Henry. “I was about two and a half seconds off my PB but I’m swimming through this meet in preparation for the Paralympic Games.

“There are lots of things I can work on between now and then and with a bit of rest behind me who knows what will happen.”

City of Peterborough’s Harriet Lee (S10) swam to the silver medal in a time of 2:38.60, with City of Leeds swimmer Claire Cashmore following closely in her wake to touch in 2:41.48 for the bronze.

Multiple Paralympian Sascha Kindred (S6), who swims with wife Nyree at Leominster SC, sealed the 200m Individual Medley gold in a time of 2:44.89.

Nova Centurion’s S8 swimmer Oliver Hynd (2:29.99) swam just outside his personal best to take the second podium spot ahead of City of Sheffield swimmer James Crisp (S9) who touched in 2:23.31.

In the final of the MC 100m Backstroke, Swansea Performance swimmer Jack Thomas (1:06.09) and Trowbridge’s Aaron Moores (1:06.08) who compete in the S14 category tied for the title, both scoring a total of 900 points.

Crisp claimed his second bronze of the night in a time of 1:04.58.

Nyree Kindred (Leominster), who competes in the S6 category, dominated in the MC 100m Backstroke final winning in a new personal best time of 1:28.53.

UEA Norwich swimmer Jessica-Jane Applegate (S14) followed closely behind Kindred in a time of 1:11.14 which scored a points total of 943 – just two points behind the winner.

Trowbridge SC secured their second medal of the night with Chloe Davies (S14) winning the bronze medal in 1:12.09.
