400 m Individual Medley records fall

[Friday, 2nd December 2016] Strong swims by Declan Brown and Josephine Peirce saw them break the existing records for 400 m Individual medley. It was an enthralling race between Declan and Josephine, with the lead changing several times. However, they weren’t racing against each other but the existing record times!

With a time of 6:28.87Declan now holds the record for the Boys 11 and under, getting well under Alessio Macri’s time of 6:58.62 set in January 2016. Josephine’s time of 6:32.71 was good enough to break two records: Girls 10 and under 400 m IM (previously 7:13.49 held by Mia Angeleski since January 2016) as well as the Girls 11 and under (previously 6:33.79, held by Alex Petroff since December 2013) and was only 0.5 s off breaking the Girls 12 and under record as well.  A great effort by both swimmers.

Points trophy winners for the first four meets of this season are now in.
