Allen claims new personal best and European silver medal
SOPHIE Allen claimed Great Britain's second silver in 24 hours at the European Swimming Championships in Debrecen.
Allen followed fellow Stockport swimmer James Goddard with a second place in the same event - the 200m medley.
The 20-year old - who will join British team-mate Hannah Miley in the same event when she makes her Olympic debut in London - broke her own personal best and English record with a time of 2:11.49.
However, she was still more than half a second adrift of gold medallist, Hungarian defending champion Katinka Hosszu.
