Defending champion Leah Schlosshan set a new European Junior Swimming Championships record as Great Britain’s youngsters impressed on the international stage.
The City of Leeds swimmer’s gold medal winning performance in the Women’s 200m Individual Medley was the highlight of the European Junior Swimming Championships for the British team in Belgrade.
Schlosshan clocked 2:12.41 on the final day of the event in Belgrade to top the podium ahead of her compatriot Phoebe Cooper, who finished second in 2:13.28.
“I am really happy I was able to defend my title from last year,” said Schlosshan. “It’s just a tiny bit off my best time, but I’m happy with the swim.
“This result show that my trainings are consistent. The Olympics is in the next year, so I will continue my trainings, I will see what I able to do next year.”
