Marren makes impression on big stage
Youngster shines once again
Amy Marren produced another excellent swim to finish fourth in the S9 women’s 400m freestyle final last night.
Hornchurch youngster Marren, 14, finished almost three seconds quicker than in the morning heats, clocking four minutes 50.79secs.
And the Newham-born Marren proved herself as one to watch for Rio behind the big three of gold medalist Natalie du Toit, her GB teammate Steph Millward, who finished second and Australia’s Ellie Cole, who took bronze in 4:42.87.
Hall Mead pupil Marren, fifth in the 100m backstroke final at her first Paralympic Games, returns to the Aquatic Centre later this morning for the 50m freestyle heats.
