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.”
