Sheffield’s Olympic swimmer Ellie Faulkner took more steps along the road to Rio yesterday.

She was 17th in the 800m freestyle heats in the World Swimming championships in Barcelona - an improvement on her 22nd place at the London Olympics a year ago and further valuable experience.

“I was hoping to do better but the more competitions I do then the better as it’s all part of the learning curve,” she said.
