Hannah Miley completed her hat-trick of medals with 400m Individual
Medley gold on the final day of the European Short Course Championships
Competing in her signature event, the World Championship silver
medallist qualified fastest for the final before clocking a European
record 4:23.47 to top the podium.
Having also won silvers in the 200m Individual Medley and 800m Freestyle
in France, Miley became the first British swimmer to win three
individual medals at a European Short Course Championships since Susan
Rolph in 1999.
And the Scot admitted: "I'm shocked that I was that fast. Last year I
went 4:26 and I was hoping to clock the same time again this week or
maybe go a little quicker.
"To post that time for a new European Record is amazing. This week has
been good for me even though tonight was very tough. I thought Katinka
(Hosszu) was going to come past me at the end but I dug deep to hold
Hosszu of Hungary took the silver in 4:23.91 while her team mate
Zsuzsanna Jakabos claimed bronze in 4:25.61.
Miley will now turn her attention to the World Short Course
Championships taking place in Istanbul from 12 - 16 December.
