Imogen Clark breaks English 100m Breaststroke record

Imogen Clark clocked an English record as England’s top young swimmers impressed on the first day of the Ontario Junior International 2016.

The 17-year old Derventio swimmer set 1:05.12 in the 100m Breaststroke final Toronto, blowing away the field with silver medallist Sarah Darcel back on 1:07.13.

Clark’s effort saw her beat Molly Renshaw’s previous marker of 1:05.22 from the 2015 ASA National Winter Meet in Sheffield.

The teenager had already broken her long course 100m Breaststroke PB this month. She swam 1:09.15 at the Derbyshire ASA 2016 Long Course Meet in Sheffield.

And she has continued her momentum in Canada, putting paid to her previous short course PB of 1:06.35.

British team start strongly in Toronto

Clark was one of four English gold medallists on the opening night of action in Canada.

Freya Anderson and Emily Large also starred on day one with British Junior records.
