NICK GILLINGHAM was denied the British 100m breaststroke record in controversial circumstances at the National Winter Championships in Gloucester last night. Gillingham was disqualified for an alleged dolphin leg-kick coming out of the second turn in the heats after clocking a record 1min 03sec. The title went to Alexander Clapper, of Coventry, in 1:03.05. Sarah Hardcastle lowered the 13-year 800m freestyle record - Britain's longest standing best time - with 8:23.96 in the final.
