Stephanie Millward is set to compete for Great Britain at the 2008 Paralympics in three events after another set of successful trials over the weekend.

The 26-year-old from Cepen Park South is just waiting for official confirmation, which she should receive on Thursday, following blistering races at the British Swimming Olympic Trials in Sheffield.

Millward, who suffers from MS, set a new European record in the 100m butterfly, coming first in 1.13.1 seconds.

She won the 100m backstroke in 1.13.2 and came second in the 100m freestyle in 66.3 seconds.

Millward was diagnosed with MS in 1999 while training for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

She quit swimming while coming to terms with her illness but returned to the sport just eight months ago.

"It hasn't really hit home yet," she said.

"This is my dream and I am loving it."
