10 March 2013Golden hat-trick for Jazz Carlin
The former Wootton Bassett School pupil overcame a tough 2012 to produce Welsh records for her 800m and 1500m freestyle golds earlier in the week.
Her winning time of 4:07.14 in the 400m was shy of her personal best 4:05.51, but Commonwealth Games medallist Carlin was adamant her performances in Leeds had restored her confidence ahead of the World Trials in June.
“I’m really happy with that. It was always going to be tough after the 1500m yesterday but I just said to my coach that I wanted to give it a go; to come out with gold is fantastic.
“The 400m is my favourite event, but my coach thinks I may be better suited to the 800m and 1500m so we’ll need to have a sit down before June to discuss which to prioritise for the trials.”
