JAZZ Carlin continued her golden summer with victory in the women's 800m freestyle at the European Swimming Championships in Berlin tonight.
Carlin, 23, clocked a new championship record of 8:15.54 as she romped home victory, ahead of Spain's Mireia Belmonte Garcia (8:21.22) and Boglarka Kapas, of Hungary (8:22.06).
The Wiltshire swimmers's time was nearly four seconds inside the former championship mark of 8:19.29 set by France's Laure Manaudou set in 2006.
Carlin also won the event at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
