Apr 11: PARALYMPIC champion Sascha Kindred broke his own SM6 200m medley world record at the British International Disability Swimming Championships.
Despite a recent illness, Kindred continued his form from last month's British Gas Swimming Championship to clock 2.41.99 in Sheffield.
“The last four weeks training has been difficult because I’ve had an infection,” said Kindred.
“So I wasn’t that confident coming into this meet. But I am really chuffed with my form on the night. I just managed to dip under that 2:42.”
Meanwhile, Oliver Hynd ? recently reclassified to SM8 ? finished in 2:31.48 to duck under the qualification time for the European Championships in a swim that showed his promise.
World champion and S7 world record holder Jonathan Fox won silver in the men’s 100m backstroke but swam just outside of his record in the final, which was won by Dutch swimmer Marc Evers.
Multi-Paralympian James Anderson secured the IPC European Championship S2 qualification time in the men’s 50m backstroke.
He clocked 1.06.29 to win silver with Brazil's Daniel Dias, who won three golds at the Beijing Paralympics, taking the title.
