Record-setter Maisie Summers-Newton takes gold at World Championships

Maisie Summers-Newton won World Championships gold beating against her own world record at the procedure.
The 17-year-old, who recorded the fastest time during the heats earlier in the day, completed the race in just two minutes, 57.24 minutes, even knocking 0.75 minutes of the present record that she set at the World Series in Glasgow back in April this year.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Summers-Newton stated:“It was such a great swim and also to do it in the front of that audience was amazing, I am so pleased with it.“
Her win also gave spectators one of the minutes of this night since the crowds roared her to success and her sister could be understood on the large screen showing her elation in the outcome.
„I got out and I said to her why would be screaming?“ Summers-Newton said. „I think she was just so pleased to see me do it in front of a home crowd.“
Another swimmer who had been hit by the home crowd was Alice Tai, who retained everybody’s nerves on edge straight.
Claiming her gold medal in as many times, she ended in a Championship Record time of one minute 09.76 moments in the process.
For the majority of the race, Tai looked very much in command but the USA’s Jessica Long upped her pace in the past 50m and ended just 0.02 seconds supporting the British swimmer.
„That was close, really close,“ Tai told Sky Sports. „It was quite cool but also somewhat intense. I might see Jess in my left-hand side and that I could also hear the audience and I honestly panicked. Like I have definitely not got this at one stage, I was.
„I knew this one might be very close though, simply to get won it I feel really blessed.“
There was a gold medal and Championship Record to get Louise Fiddes from the SB14 100m Breaststroke as Great Britain additional six awards for their tally daily three of the Para-Swimming World Championships.
