KARA Hanlon has been making waves all year long with her ever-improving times in pools up and down the country.

But now the Stornoway teenager has shattered even her own expectations with a blistering race pace in the water at Sheffield where she overhauled her own personal best to clock the fifth fastest time in the whole of the UK this year.

Remarkably her time pits her just two seconds outside the qualifying standard for the Olympic Games leaving Kara thrilled and confident about the upcoming months.
