medley mark for miley

You don’t have to be down under to be setting records; while her British team-mates laboured in Melbourne, Garioch’s Hannah Miley smashed her own British Record on the first night of heats at the British Championships in Manchester. the young Scot carved over 4 seconds off her own national standard. posting 4:40.07 to easily head qualification for tomorrow morning’s finals.
Put in context, that time would be good enough for 10th in the world last year, just behind Laure Manaudou, and may prove to be fast enough to have earned a finals spot at the World Championships. Miley missed out on selection for that meet in Budapest last year, but now will be aiming to cement a place for the Olympics next year.
