Andrew Lindsay set a world record time of one minute 14.47 seconds as he won the S7 men's 100m backstroke at the DSE Short Course Swimming Championships.

Scotland's James Anderson set two new world records in winning the 100m and 200m S2 freestyle races in Sheffield.

Sam Hynd, 16, from the East Midlands and Swansea's Eleanor Simmonds, 13, beat the world record in their events.

Paralympic gold medallist Nyree Lewis also set a new world record, winning the SM6 100m in 1:34:43.


Lewis said: "The DSE short course nationals have been an event in my calendar for many years.

"I always look forward to competing at a short course event - something that we only get to do once a year at this level."

Over 200 British and international swimmers competed in the championships.
