Todmorden swimmer Lois Shackleton is determined not to be out-done by her older sister Megan, the Great Britain wheelchair table tennis player.

Eleven-year-old Lois was in sparkling form at the City of Bradford Open Winter meet at the John Charles Aquatic Centre in Leeds.

She won gold in the 100 metres backstroke in a time of 1.20.39 and silver in the 50m freestyle in 32.24 seconds.

Both these times are qualifying Yorkshire times for 2014 and the backstroke is also a North East qualifying time.

Lois trains five times a week with Halifax Swimming Club.
