Day 4: Nyree storms to 2nd Gold!

Well, as if the championships for Nyree and Sascha hadn't brought enough surprises already!

Nyree has only gone and made up for the dissapointment of Sunday's swim with a mightily impressive swim in the 400m freestyle.

Nyree stormed to gold ahead of current World Record holder Doramitzi Gonzalez in a time of 6:04.46 to claim her second gold of the championships. Gonzalez finished second in a time of 6:07.35.

The time was some way outside of the World Record but it was an outstanding swim none the less. Nyree was clearly ecstatic saying, "I was hoping for a medal and maybe to sneak the gold, but actually getting the gold and beating Doramitzi is a totally fantastic feeling and I'm over the moon."
