Swindon Dolphin’s Commonwealth breaststroker Chris Jones set a new world record in the three-day ASA Masters Short Course Championships at Ponds Forge in Sheffield .
Chief coach Andi Manley had predicted that at least one British record could be returning to Milton Road , but Jones broke the world mark in the 200m in a time of 2:18.04.
Jones was in peak form all weekend, claiming five individual gold medals before playing a key role in both the record-breaking freestyle and medley relays.
Dolphin also set two British records in the men’s 100-plus years 4 x 50 metres freestyle and medley relays.
