Emma England and Jacob Peters set new British junior records on the final day of the ASA National Winter Meet (25m) 2015 in Sheffield.
Plymouth Leander swimmer England reached the open final of the 50m Freestyle where she impressed to clock 25.51 and beat her own previous record of 25.62 from this October’s Manchester International Meet.
The 15-year old, who won the 50m Free title for her age group at this year’s British Summer Championships, finished sixth in the open final to claim junior gold with Ealing’s Brodie Judge breaking 26 seconds for the first time in silver on 25.88.
Staines swimmer Julia Jaworska collected junior bronze on 25.97 after a PB 25.96 in the heats.
Peters also broke his own record as he claimed a fifth junior gold of the competition.
The Poole SC swimmer, who had already broken the British junior 100m Butterfly record in Sheffield, clocked 24.82 in the heats of the 50m Fly to lower the marker over half the distance.
And while he couldn’t quite lower it again when he returned for the B final in the evening session, Peters picked up junior gold after a 25.24 swim.
Taz Pugh, who has set British junior butterfly records herself at Ponds Forge, finished fourth in an open final for the second time as she collected junior gold in the 200m Backstroke.
The Ellesmere College Titans swimmer, who was a medallist at this year’s Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa, clocked a PB 2:07.34 in the final – denied a senior medal by just 0.04 seconds as her teammate Chloe Golding grabbed the third spot on the podium behind Lizzie Simmonds (2:00.91) and Jessica Fullalove (2:05.05).
Having set British junior records over 50m and 100m Backstroke at the Meet, Woking’s Anna Maine also made the open final in the 200m Back and lifted junior silver with Nova Centurion’s Lily Boseley collecting bronze.
The only other juniors to make open finals on day four were in the women’s 400m IM where City of Leeds’s Ciara Schlosshan (4:41.75 PB) and Sophie Hobbah (4:47.70 PB) were split by Newcastle’s Emily Large (4:43.58 PB) on the junior podium.
