Jessica-Jane Applegate has had the bit between her teeth since winning a gold and two silvers at this summer’s IPC Swimming World Championships in Glasgow.
The London 2012 Paralympic gold medallist admitted in Glasgow she would leave no stone unturned in her pursuit of a second Paralympic gold in Rio next summer.
And, judging by her early short course season form, the 19-year old has been true to her word in the training pool in recent months.
Competing over the three stages of the UEA City of Norwich Club Championships, Applegate took the axe to the British S14 records for all six distances of freestyle swimming.
The biggest gains were over the longer distances as the reigning Paralympic 200m Freestyle champion underlined her improving stamina.
After chipping more than a minute off the old BR with a PB 9:20.66 in the 800m Freestyle, she clocked a seven-second PB 4:29.53 in the 400m Free.
She sailed under her existing world record times with a 2:06.59 effort over 200m Free and a 59.07 blast in the 100m Free.
Shortly after, Applegate’s fifth record in two days came with a splash and dash 27.49 to take overall victory against able-bodied rivals in the 50m Freestyle.
Just five days later, the teenager returned to the pool for the 1500m Freestyle, finishing second overall but obliterating the existing British record of 20:37.49 by nearly two minutes with a PB 18:40.00.
