Jacqueline sets pace



SKENNARS HEAD swimmer Jacqueline Freney has set the pace at the US Open paralympic championships, winning twice on the first day.

Jacqueline, pictured above, claimed the gold medal in the 200m freestyle S8 category, breaking a 10-year-old Australian record.

She backed that up with another gold in the the 800m freestyle, improving her personal best by 46s.

The performance sent a clear message to the US team and put a big smile on the face of Brendon Keogh, Australian paralympic head coach.

This is 15-year-old Jacqueline's first international competition.

She will need to push it up a few cogs today in the 50m freestyle, where she will be up against American world record holder Jessica Long. That will be followed by her favourite event, the 400m freestyle.
