Featherstone swimmer Sarah Shutt broke two European records and a world record as she added three more medals to her collection.

Sarah, 39, claimed a gold medal in the breast stroke, silver in the back stroke and a bronze in the relay race at the Special Olympics National Games in Bath.

She was representing her county at the event and she also swims for Able2 Pontefract and Minsthorpe Marlins.

Kim Sunderland, who has been Sarah’s support worker for nine years, said: “We’ve lost track of just how many awards Sarah has won.

“She’s only been competing for three years but it’s given her more confidence and she really enjoys it.”

Sarah’s will fly to Portugal next week after being chosen to represent Great Britain at the Down’s syndrome European Swimming Championships.

Steve Peace, chairman of Able2 Pontefract, said: “We are so proud of Sarah’s achievements and we are really pleased to have her in our squad.”
