halsall equals record

Fran Halsall equalled Melanie Marshall’s British record for the 100m freestyle as she posted a time of 54.62 while competing in the Australian Age Group Championships in Perth. It is believed that this represents the fastest time ever by a 16-year-old and builds on her encouraging showing in the recent World Championships.
Three British swimmers are taking part in the meet in Perth, with Halsall joined by Lizzie Simmonds and Jessica Dickons.
