The 22-year-old, who competes in the SB8 and SM8 category, booked her place at the World Championships after producing some stunning results at the World Para Swimming World Series leg in Glasgow last month.

Whiston, who trains at the Becontree Heath Leisure Centre under the guidance of coach Stewart Nicklin, set new British records in both the 100m breaststroke and 200m individual medley to book her place at September's World Championships.

The 22-year-old will now be busy in training over the new few months to remain on top of her form for a home world championships later this year.

The World Championships were moved to the London Aquatics Centre in Stratford earlier this year after Malaysia were stripped of hosting rights.
