British Gas ASA Youth Championships (50m) 2009, incorporating the National Championships - Day 4

Day four proved to be successful for the Multi Disability swimmers as they claimed three European Records. Stephanie Millward (Swansea Performance) set new European figures for the S9 category in the Women’s Multi Disability 100m Butterfly. She swam to a new Record of 1:10.61.

Millward said: "I was very pleased with the swim. I was looking forward to it this morning and thought hopefully I would swim fast. I was pushed all the way by Rhiannon (Henry) who I train with sometimes so I knew she would swim fast today but I was very pleased to get the European Record. Training’s been going very well. It is hard work, my coach Billy Pye pushes me just that little bit too hard but it’s definitely worth it."
