Swede becomes fastest 100m free in textile suit

The big news of the weeked was Sweden’s Sara Sjostrom’s 53.05 100m free lc from the international meeting in Eindhoven. It is the fastest swim in a textile suit and puts her among the contenders for the Olympic title in London. Sarah and her British coach Carl Jenner were with us at the BEST centre in the summer.

Other BEST Centre regulars, Hannah Miley (Garioch) and David Davies (Cardiff) finished first and third respectively at the meet, and Spain’s Mireia Belmonte, who has swam with us a number of times along with the Spanish national team, won the 800m free to put her third fastest in the world.
