Collier Row swimmer Brock Whiston broke a world record at the British Para Swimming World Series multi-classification final in Berlin.

The 22-year-old, who competes in the SB8 and SM8 category, not only but broke the record once but a number of times during the competition.

The youngster then broke the record again in the final with a time of 1.14.41.

In the 50m breaststroke event she broke yet another record with a time of 34.12 to win the gold medal.

She 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 at the London Aquatics Centre in Stratford.
