Jayne follows World success with new British best at National Championships

New British record holder Jayne Stephenson continued her successful year as she triumphed in the Women’s 65-69 Years 1500m Freestyle race at the Swim England Masters National Championships.

After winning five medals at the World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea, earlier this year, Stephenson touched home almost three minutes clear of her rivals.

Her time of 22:28.25 was five seconds quicker than her entry time and she said: “I was hoping for this result.

“I thought it was the European record but it’s a new British record. At least I know I need to swim faster next year but I’m very pleased overall.

“I was in Gwangju, South Korea a couple of months ago and that was fun and I came back and trained up for this as well.

“I got two golds, two silvers and a bronze in Gwangju. I’m in another four events this weekend, it’d be nice to get some more records but who knows.”

Stephenson finished ahead of Guildford’s Christina Victor (25:24.54), while Shelley Robinson, of Sevenoaks, was third in 27:59.64.
