Another British record for Russell in Sheffield

21st July 2012

Hannah Russell lowered the S12 British record twice in one day as she claimed MC 100m Freestyle gold in the final session of the 2012 British Gas ASA National Youth Championships.

The 15-year old, who won MC 400m Freestyle gold on the opening night in Sheffield, had qualified in first for the final with her morning swim of 1:02.17.

But Russell saved her best for the final, clocking 1:00.88 for victory in the fastest 100m Freestyle time by an S12 swimmer this year.

Otters’ Susie Rodgers (S7) took silver in 1:13.87 with City of Leeds’ Claire Cashmore (S9) coming in for bronze in 1:06.39.

Rodgers had gone one better earlier in the evening, setting 38.88 for MC 50m Butterfly gold ahead of Jan Langton (S6) in 47.63 and Grace Harvey (S7) in 57.04.

Ren 96 swimmer Andrew Mullen (S5) warmed up for his first Paralympics with gold in the men’s final, touching in 40.37.

Sam Bradley (S7) claimed silver in 35.97 while Alexander Goodman (S7) took bronze in 37.11.

Finally, David Ellis (S13) took the spoils in the MC 100m Freestyle final, stopping the clock on 56.21 for gold.
