She’s also been in record-breaking form this season, setting long and short course European records over SM9 200m Individual Medley.
Having won five silvers at the previous IPC World Championships and four silvers at London 2012 last year, Millward finally landed gold with victories in the S9 100m Freestyle and S9 100m Backstroke as well as both relays alongside Marren.
The 32-year old also claimed SM9 200m Individual Medley silver behind Marren to ensure she made the podium in all five of her events at the meet.
Despite admitting she gave herself a longer break than usual following her double gold at London 2012, Ellie Simmonds starred in the S6 classification in Montreal with three golds, a bronze and two fourth-place finishes.
The 18-year old’s golds came over 100m Freestyle, 400m Freestyle and 200m Individual Medley, the latter in a world record.
