Imogen Clark, Ben Proud and Lizzie Simmonds set the pool on fire with British records on the first night of the ASA National Winter Meet (25m) 2015 in Sheffield.
Teenager Clark, who swims at Derventio eXcel in Derbyshire, powered her way to a new British record in the 50m Breaststroke.
The 16-year old was still wearing nappies when the old record was set by Commonwealth gold medallist Zoe Baker some 14 years ago!
But Clark underlined her huge potential with a 30.02 effort to win the senior title ahead of City of Derby’s Sarah Vasey (30.47 PB) and Hong Kong’s Yvette Man-Yi Kong (30.84).
International medallists Ben Proud and Lizzie Simmonds were also in record-breaking form on day one in Sheffield as they won the 50m Freestyle and 100m Backstroke titles respectively.
Commonwealth champion Proud looked in a class of his own as he took down six-time World Short Course gold medallist Mark Foster’s record from way back in 2002.
The 21-year old became the first British man to swim under 21 seconds for short course 50m Free as he clocked 20.74 to take the title, nearly a second ahead of Loughborough University’s Andrew Weatheritt (21.55) and Lewis Clifford-Stephenson (21.92).
Lizzie Simmonds took down her own British record in the 100m Backstroke as she prepares her campaign to reach a third Olympic Games.
The 24-year old, who has won medals at both World and European level in the short course pool, touched in 56.35 as Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth medallists Georgia Davies (56.84) and Lauren Quigley (57.79).
There were also junior British records for Elliot Clogg, Anna Maine and Jacob Peters while Nathan Hughes clocked a new English junior marker.
City of Sheffield swimmer Clogg won senior bronze in the 200m Backstroke as he clocked 1:56.70 to beat his own junior marker and touch behind Joseph Hulme (1:55.27) and Jonny Carlisle (1:55.97).
Maine also reached the ‘A’ final in the her event, the 100m Backstroke. The 15-year old from Woking ended up finishing sixth, but her time of 59.23 broke Lizzie Simmonds’ old record of 59.25 from nine years ago.
Poole swimmer Peters set his new record in the heats, shaving more than a second off the old marker as he touched in 54.46 in the 100m Butterfly while Hughes clocked a new English junior best of 3:54.78 in the 400m Freestyle.
