Fran Halsall, fourth at London 2012 by a whisker in the 50m freestyle, Commonwealth and European champion and until yesterday the fastest ever in a textile suit, won her 11th British one-lap title in 24.48, 0.11sec shy of instant gratification. She was asked by a brave or foolish soul: “How do you feel about being British champion again?” The answer: “It’s not about being a British champion, it’s about being an Olympic champion.”
