The second night of competition at the Ontario Junior International showcased some amazing talent from British swimmers as three British Junior records were broken in the 25-meter pool.

The first record came in the women’s 200m butterfly as Emily Large took down her own British Junior record of 2:07.21 that she set this morning with a winning time of 2:07.00. The 15-year-old bettered Keanna MacInnes’ 2:08.79 record this morning in the heats. MacInnes set that record last week.

In tonight’s final Large and MacInnes went head-to-head with Large ultimately coming up successful. MacInnes finished second, short of her Scottish NAG record time of 2:08.79.

Elliot Clogg continued his domination here in Toronto after winning both the 50m backstroke and 200m freestyle last night with a stellar time of 53.43 in the men’s 100m backstroke. Clogg, 16, won the race by just 17 one-hundredths, breaking his previous British Junior record of 54.14 that he set last year. Tonight’s swim marks Clogg’s first time ever under 54-seconds in the short course 100m backstroke.

Freya Anderson came home strong in the women’s 400m freestyle to finish second overall to Canada’s Mary-Sophie Harvey with a time of 4:05.69. That time bettered Holly Hibbit’s British Junior record of 4:08.43 by almost three-seconds.
