Hannah Miley claimed her second medal of the World Short-Course Championships when she was third in the 200 metres individual medley in Istanbul.

The 23-year-old won gold in her specialist 400m event on the first night of competition, breaking her own European record in the process.

The Garioch swimmer was fourth with 50m to go on Saturday evening but she managed to force her way into the podium places to touch in two minutes 07.12 seconds.

It was Great Britain's fourth medal of the five-day competition in Turkey, which will conclude on Sunday.

Miley, seventh in this event at the Olympics, said: "I am really, really happy with that.

"It has given me another boost of confidence and motivation for the next part of the season."

The women's 4x100m freestyle relay team of Rebecca Turner, Lizzie Simmonds, Eleanor Faulkner and Fran Halsall finished eighth in a final won by the United States.

Georgia Davies set a British record of 26.84 to qualify fifth for the 50m backstroke final, Jemma Lowe is third into the 100m butterfly final as she looks to add to her 200m bronze while Halsall is joint fourth into the 50m freestyle decider.
