GB's Jamie Cooke sets a new 200m freestyle world record at the Modern Pentathlon European Championships

Great Britain's Jamie Cooke breaks the modern pentathlon 200m freestyle world record for the second time in a month at the European Championships at Medway Park.

Cooke's time of 1:49:59 made him the first man in the history of the sport to dip under the one minute 50 second mark.

Cooke has broken pentathlon's long-course and short-course swimming records on a string of occasions in recent weeks, but both marks remain more than 10 seconds adrift of the overall swimming world records for men's 200m freestyle.
