Anderson crowned World Junior champion

26 Aug 2017

Great Britain teenager Freya Anderson has been crowned World Junior Champion after dominating the 100m Freestyle final at the FINA championships in Indianapolis.

Anderson, the current European Junior Champion, set a new personal best time and World Junior Championship Record of 53.88 to take the gold while silver went to Japan’s Rikako Ikee and bronze to Canada’s Kayla Sanchez.

The World title caps an impressive season for the Ellesmere College Titans swimmer after she made her senior British debut at last month’s World Championships in Budapest.

Day three of the championships also saw Newcastle Swim Team’s Emily Large (16), who won gold in the 200m Butterfly the previous day, in action and she was just outside her best time as she qualified eighth fastest for the final of the 50m Butterfly.

Britain currently sit fourth on the overall World Junior Championship medal table with three medals – two gold and one bronze.
