Fox and Crisp smash world records in Sheffield

Apr 2 2010
Sell-out crowds witnessed two world records broken on the penultimate day of the British Gas Swimming Championships 2010 in Sheffield.

The final of the Men’s D 100m Backstroke saw two world records broken simultaneously as Jonathan Fox (Newquay) set a new record in the S7 category with fellow competitor James Crisp (City of Sheffield) taking the honours in S9.

Fox touched in 1:11.99 earning him 1004 points to win gold with Crisp taking silver in 1:03.32 and 1001 points. Bronze went to Gallica’s Thomas Young whose 1:08.58 earned him 905 points.

Speaking about what he expects at the upcoming disability World trials Fox said: “I want to try and go under 1:10.00 and get another world record.”

After posting a new world record earlier in the week Sasha Kindred (Leominster) was in action again, this time in the Men’s 200m Individual Medley.

Swimming in the SM6 category Kindred took gold in a time of 2:46.51 (924 points) with silver going to City of Manchester’s David Ellis (SM13) who touched in 2:23.81 (805 points). Bronze was won by Preston’s Jack Bridge (SM10) who finished in 2:29.48 (701 points).
