During the final of the women’s 400 IM at the 2019 British Championships, 14-year-old Katie Shanahan broke Hannah Miley‘s Scottish junior record. Shanahan finished 5th in the final, stopping the clock with a monster lifetime best of 4:46.62. Shanahan was seeded with a 4:50.69 and dropped a few tenths in prelims and qualified 7th into the Open final with a 4:50.09.
Shanahan’s time took down Hannah Miley‘s 2005 Scottish Junior group record (4:47.01). According to Scottish Swimming, “A Junior competitor is defined as under 17 years of age at midnight on 31st December in the year of completion.” For the all-time 18&U Scottish performers list, Shanahan is only behind Miley’s time of 4:33.24, which she achieved in 2008 at 18 years old.
On the all-time open age group Scottish performers list, Shanahan is now the 4th-fastest performer in the event.
