British Record for Genner

Coventry’s Rachel Genner recorded a new British record of 1:09.59 for the 100m breastroke whilst winning the BUSA long course title at Sheffield’s Pond’s Forge pool. Her swim removes Jaime King’s old record which had stood since the British World Championship Trials in April 2001. Genner had signalled her intent with a sub 1:10 long course swim earlier in the season at Bath. She now moves into the forthcoming British Championships as firm favourite for the title and a place on the team for this year’s Barcelona World Championships.
