Tai doubles medal tally on second day in Berlin
Alice Tai and Reece Dunn both set stunning world records as they continued to dazzle in Berlin at the World Para Swimming World Series Finale.
The pair followed up Thursday’s medal-laden evening by adding two golds and a silver, with six athletes in action for GB on day two of the competition.
Tai kicked off Britain’s evening by claiming her third medal of the event, sharing silver with Canada’s Aurélie Rivard in the women’s 100m freestyle, with Paralympic gold medallist Jessica-Jane Applegate coming home seventh.
The 20-year-old returned to the water minutes later in the 50m backstroke, where she set a blistering S8 world record time of 32:01 to take her medal haul for the event to two golds and two silvers, with Abby Kane seventh and Applegate ninth.
Between Tai’s two races, Dunn claimed his second S14 world record in as many days on his way to gold in the men’s 100m freestyle, in a time of 51:52.
In the same race, GB’s Jordan Catchpole came fifth, while Louis Lawlor finished eighth.
With the action continuing until Sunday, the British squad will be hopeful of further success over the weekend.
