During a British para-swimming meet the 23-year-old who is a member of Preston Swimming Club set a new 100m butterfly world record.
She beat American Jessica Long’s previous record, going .12 seconds faster.
Slater is dominating the swimming meet in Glasgow.
She told BBC Sport: “Words can’t describe it – it’s an amazing feeling.
“I had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to break the record so I just went out there and swam the hardest I could.”
Last week she qualified for the Commonwealth Games which take place later this year.
