Freya Anderson continued to impress as she set a second British Junior record at the Ontario Junior International 2016.
The 15-year old beat the old national marker in both heats and finals of the 400m Freestyle in Toronto.
After a 4:07.75 effort in the morning heats, she improved to 4:05.69 to win silver in the final behind 17-year old Canadian Mary-Sophie Harvey (2:04.23).
Anderson’s efforts sailed under the previous record – Holly Hibbott’s 4:08.43 from November last year.
It was also the Ellesmere College Titans swimmer’s second British Junior record in two days, having lowered the 200m Freestyle record, also for overall silver, on the opening night in Canada.

Elliot Clogg and Joe Litchfield returned to the top of the podium for the second consecutive day while Emily Large also won gold.
There was also a 200m Breaststroke bronze medal for City of Leeds swimmer Layla Black.
The 16-year old swam 2:26.47 to touch third in the final, having qualified with a PB 2:25.17.
