Lily Macleod Breaks British Record

Back in November, Lily competed at the Welsh Capital Open Short Course Meet in Cardiff. She raced in several events across the weekend, but it was in the 200 freestyle where she had the highest achievement.

In this event she managed to break the British Record in the S13 classification, by nearly 3 seconds! The record now stands  at 2:16.77!

This is a fantastic achievement and hopefully the first of many records that will be broken by Lily. Well done from all at RDASC, keep up the hard work!
