Quin takes gold on third night of British Summer Championships
Paralympic silver medallist Scott Quin (SB14, Warrender Baths) claimed gold in the men’s MC 100m Breaststroke final on the third night of the British Summer Championships in Sheffield.
Quin secured a consideration time for the World Para Swimming Championships in September as he finished in 1:07.64 to take gold with 943 points.
Connor Morrison (SB14, Aberdeen Performance) also went below the consideration standard in a time of 1:07.99 as he claimed the silver medal with 928 points while Tyler Ioannou (SB14, Bracknell) won the bronze medal with 726 points after setting a time of 1:13.78.
Elsewhere, Maisie-Summers Newton (Northampton) came within touching distance of breaking the Women’s SB6 100m Breaststroke world record.
The 15-year-old took gold in the Women’s MC 100m Breaststroke final with 998 points. Her time of 1:34.99 was just 0.04 seconds off the current world leading time set by Australia’s Tiffany Thomas Kane in 2015.
Silver went to Louise Fiddes (SB14, Hatfield) with a total of 852 points after setting a time of 1:16.57. Rebecca Redfern (SB13, Worcester) won bronze with a time of 1:16.47 and 850 points – all three medallists’ times were within the consideration standard
There was nothing to separate Hannah Russell (S12, City of Manchester Aquatics) and Stephanie Millward (S8, Corsham) in the Women’s MC 100m Freestyle final as both swimmers finished with a total of 923 points to claim a gold medal each.
Russell secured the World Championships consideration standard in a time of 59.97, while Millward stopped the clock in a time of 1:06.46. Alice Tai (S9, Bournemouth College) claimed the bronze medal with 862 points and a time of 1:03.98.
Jonathan Fox (S7, City of Manchester Aquatics) was back on the top step of the podium for the second time in as many days after adding the Men’s MC 100m Freestyle title to the 100m Backstroke title he won on Wednesday.
Fox secured gold with 862 points in a time of 1:03.40. S9 swimmer Lewis White (City of Derby) won silver in a World Championships consideration time of 57.13 and a points tally of 852. Ollie Hynd (S8, Nova Centurions) finished third with 836 points after setting a time of 59.27.
