asa National Championships 2008 - Multi-Disability Swims Day 4

Another superb performance in the multi-disability 100m breaststroke saw Claire Cashmore of Kelly College break the British record to win the S8 category in 1:25.65.

I wasnt expecting that at all. At the moment Im still doing 10,000m per day plus the races. Like her paralympian teammates Cashmore is using these Championships as a rehearsal of what she will do in Beijing in thirty-seven days time.

Cashmore concluded Im really excited about the Paralympics, if I can do this now when Im tired I wonder what I can do in Beijing when Im not so tired. The atmosphere at the Paralympics in Beijing is expected to be electric as all of the swimming events have been sold out completely.
