Double gold for Jones and Clegg on day two in Sheffield

Ellena Jones (Swansea Aquatics) and James Clegg (East Lothian Swim Team) both bagged golden doubles on the second day of action at the 2014 British Gas ASA National Youth, Open and MC Championships in Sheffield.

Jones, who won the Youth 3km Open Water title on Sunday and made her Commonwealth debut for Wales at Glasgow 2014 this summer, impressed to clinch 17/18 Yrs 800m Freestyle gold in the afternoon heats.
